FCMS demonstrates feedback of optimized FEM beams into CATIA surfaces

The presentation illustrated beam theory on the basis of the NASTRAN-FEM Solver and explained the advantages (very fast simulation and optimization) as well as the drawbacks (abstraction) of FEM beam simulations compared to conventional FEM shell models. The FCM geometry model of a car body is available for this efficient FEM beam simulation at the touch of a button and, following optimization, can be fed back into a new surface model.
