FEM Examples launches a graphical interface that allows you to access the different examples available in the Workbench FEM.svg FEM workbench.


  1. Go to Utilities → FEM Examples.svg Open FEM examples.
  2. The FEM Examples view opens with various categories, All, Constraints, Equations, Materials, Meshes, Solvers.
  3. Open the categories, select one example, and press Setup to open the simulation case only; or press Run to open the case, and start the simulation, so that the results are available.

Note: the examples will use one of the finite element solvers that the workbench supports; therefore, the necessary FEM solver should be installed before the example is able to run.
