Femap Tips & Tricks: Assigning Material Properties to Solid Geometry

By AlRobertson

See how to assign different material properties to solid geometry while setting up a finite element model in this Femap tip and trick video.

Model creation methods and workflows are very flexible in Femap and you can see one way of assigning different materials to solid geometry entities at the time of meshing the model in this video. The video continues to show model setup including glued contact definition, loads and constraints setup, analysis and results viewing.
