advanced structural and pipework analysis

Finite Element Features

FS2000 is a complete finite system offering 3-D finite element modeling in an interactive graphical environment. The range of line, surface and solid elements enable any type of structural system to be modeled. All 3-D elements e.g. beams, shells and solids can be connected within a model with full compatibility.

FS2000 has an interface module that can convert FE meshes generated by mesh generation software package GID.
