Does anyone know if FEM Designer does non-linear calculations?
No FEMDesigner is purely linear (as are Moduli).
By 'non-linear' do you mean Large displacements (geometric non-linearity) , or are you looking for non-linear materials (e.g. Elastic-Plastic) ? If I could ever have got FEMDesigner to work, I would happily have paid for the Elastic-Plastic capability.
Take also a look on
They have online manuals
David -- In essence, FEMDesigner is a Tensile Modulus based analysis that has the "capability" og applying Tangent or Secant Modulus values for "Post Yield processing."
There is another FEM Program that has Free version limited to 1000 nodes.
they have several analisys types
Thermal steady state or transient
DC current flow
you can see the specs here ..
Is FEM Designer still active? The site seems down...
Mecway offers a free upgrades for all exiting customers without the maintenance fee.
I believe that James was (shall wqe say) "Hip deep in the big Muddy" for a while. He is back, fixing things, and up at http://femdesigner.co.uk/. He just walked me through a "port" to Alibre Design V2018.2 quite nicely!!! -- Lew
