Femap, Tips

Structures like reinforced concrete where steel rebar in encased in solid concrete can be represented by 1-D rod or beam elements for the rebar inside solid 3-D tet-elements for the concrete. When setting up such a model you have to take care to ensure that the mesh is contiguous and that the 1-D elements connect

Femap, Tips

Layers and Groups are ways in which complex models can be separated into convenient bits. After years of experience, our recommendations are these: Layers are better for pre-planned separation of significant parts of the model. Remember, entities belong to only one layer.  New entities are placed on the Active layer.  Copied entities are placed on
