CheFEM 3 App
CheFEM 3 combines calibrated Lattice Equation of States with a Cubic FEM Grid to quantify environmental effects on polymers and their composites. CheFEM 3 app can be used as a stand-alone tool and as a "chemical exposure" plug-in to FEA based packages, like Abaqus, Ansys, SolidWorks, Digimat and Digital-Twin algorithms.
