About Services Examples Research Site map Contacts

Matlab FEM Toolbox for Solid Mechanics is primarily intended for intermediate-level users allowing them to explore the power of FEM. It provides capabilities for solution of linear problems in solid mechanics and offers extensive visualization features. Input data are described in a file with intuitive structure, which is illustrated using several examples included in the \fem\input directory.

FEM Toolbox is a free and open-source software, which is distributed under the BSD 2-Clause License. The Toolbox was written by Anton Zaicenco.

   Basic Features:

  • Static, dynamic, modal analysis, and heat transfer for linear systems;
  • Simple User Interface with input model visualization;
  • Input file based on the data structures (nodes, elements, constraints, etc.);
  • Result visualization: mode shapes, deformations, response animations
  • Max tested model size: 307,686 DOFs for static and modal analysis.
