About this app

This Finite Element Method (FEM) app is especially useful for civil engineers, mechanical engineers, architects and students who wish to design 2D hyperstatic frames using Finite Elements Analysis (FEA).

You can input and edit geometry, forces, supports, loadcases etc. The calculation results are performed instantly.

Main features include:
✓ F, T and q (rectangular and triangular) loads
✓ Fixed and hinge connections at beam ends
✓ Fixed, hinge, roller and spring supports in any direction
✓ Imposed deflections
✓ Add or edit materials
✓ Add or edit sections
✓ Load cases and load combinations, including safety factors
✓ Moment, Shear, Stress, Deflection, Reaction forces and Unity checks

The app it is not working properly. I set in the right menu to see reaction which change from greyed to red and I press the arrow on top left to come back to the graphics screen where structural model and they are not visible. Again I come back to that menu and they are greyed again. I thought it was a problem with the free use of the app so I purchase it but I experience the same problem. Please. Correct this issue. Thank you

This is good app. Works better. At first I thought it was drawing only bending moment diagram but when I checked the Results option I realized that this was set to moment digram by default. You can draw shear force, axial force and bemding moment with it. But the only thing is that it is designed only for frames. It would be better if it were able to calculate beams and trusses too.

Hi, thank you for your review! You can calculate beans and trusses too by applying the correct internal hinges

Great for quick verifications. Having a recurrent issue where when switching between load cases or load combinations, the app fails to draw or calculate with message 'lateinit property mVDrawMain has not been initialized', requiring me to restart the app to make it work. Otherwise all great
