Femap plays critical role in the design simulation of NASA’s new Orion manned spacecraft

The challenges are many for the Orion multi-purpose crew vehicle, NASA’s first spacecraft designed for long-duration deep space exploration. That included more than 900 load cases associated with launch and abort, finite element models with up to 1 million elements and a huge volume of results data to sort through to determine critical load cases. Results have included complicated trade studies completed in two to three weeks, improved accuracy through visualization and geometry manipulation tools that help confirm the finite element model was properly created.
