THE LEADING TOOL FOR CHEMICAL EXPOSURE SIMULATION

About CheFEM
The generic software package applies calibrated Sanchez-Lacombe Equation of States and Finite Element Methodology (FEM) to quantify chemical potential and exposure effects on polymers and their composites. CheFEM can be installed as a stand-alone tool as well as "chemical exposure plug-in" to other mechanically oriented FEM packages, such as Abaqus and Ansys.
