Impact Finite Element Alternatives

Impact Finite Element is described as 'Impact is an explicit Finite Element Program Suite which simulates dynamic impact events. It has a range of elements, contact handling and different material laws. Models can be created, solved and analyzed with the included pre- and postprocessor' and is an app. There are five alternatives to Impact Finite Element for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, Online / Web-based and BSD. The best alternative is FreeCAD, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Impact Finite Element are Elmer, COMSOL Multiphysics, ANSYS Workbench and Calculix.

Impact Finite Element alternatives are mainly CAD Software but may also be 3D Modelers. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of Impact Finite Element.
