Femap 11.4.2: Enhanced Thermal and Flow Simulation Capabilities

By AlRobertson

The latest version of Femap – 11.4.2 – was released earlier this week and contains a number of enhancements to the thermal and flow simulation capabilities. Highlights include a solution efficiency increase with solver parallelization, an improved adaptive time stepping capability and enhancements to the thermal coupling solution. The advanced thermal module sees the addition of an enhanced orbit visualizer, and you will see some expanded output options for simulation results. Some new capabilities added include the analysis of homogeneous gas mixtures and immiscible fluid mixtures.
