This is a suite of modules within the STEP modular framework that can be used to record information about an engineering problem. The modules support a wide range of different disciplines (structural, thermal, CFD) and a wide range of different analysis approaches (finite elements, finite difference, finite volume, lumped parameter).
The EACM supports the definition of the engineering problem, test results, and analysis results.
New integrated resources are being developed for ISO 10303 (STEP - STandard for the Exchange of Product data) to support the requirements of engineering analysis. These resources are:
A pilot project has been carried out to demonstrate the publication of the NAFEMS benchmarks as AP 203 and AP 209 files.
The results of this project and the sample AP 203 and AP 209 files can be downloaded.
