CM2 FEM 2D
current version: 5.3.0 (November 2022)
C++ FEA Solver for Beam, Plate and Shell Models
CM2 FEM 2D is the version of CM2 FEM SDK dedicated to beam, plate and shell models. If you are looking for a solution dedicated to solids, take a look at CM2 FEM 3D.
CM2 FEM 2D is a high-quality Finite Element Analysis (FEA) C++ library for structure mechanical, thermo-mechanical and thermal analysis with static, non-linear and modal and buckling solvers.
- 1-D (bars, beams) and 2-D elements (membranes, plates, shells), including quadratic elements.
- Static linear and non-linear (Newton), dynamic (modal, modal LDRV, gyroscopic, transient), Euler buckling, seismic (CQC combination), thermal (static conductivity).
- Punctual, linear, surface and volume loads (forces, momentums), thermal loads (uniform, gradients, element-by-element).
- Dirichlet, Neumann.
- Elastic constitutive laws (Hooke, Saint-Venant), elasto-plastic laws (Prandtl-Reuss types: Ramberg-Osgood, power, perfect elasto-plastic).

Training + Custom Developments and Extensions
We love our code. As we have been and are still working hard to develop it, we know it inside out. No one is better suited to help you in many ways.
We are standing by to assist with the integration of our SDK into your programs. Training sessions are available either at your location or in our offices right here in Versailles, France. We’ll be happy to teach you to use our code, to integrate it and get the best out of it to power and enhance your applications.
We are open to suggestions to expand the boundaries of our CM2 MeshTools SDK and CM2 FEM SDK with new features tailored to your specific needs. We can also design and develop exclusive full custom-made code for you.
