How to get a​​​​​​​ license​​​​​​​ for​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​FEMFAT

Due to its structure, the FEMFAT software allows users to select the optimal solution in the form of an appropriate module (combination)  for the analysis task at hand. This flexibility is also reflected in the license models: in addition to a classic perpetual license, licenses can also be rented or used on an as-needed basis against an account with a credit balance.

Licenses for Purchase

Licenses for the individual software modules can be purchased directly at any time.

We recommend that the software be maintained by means of a maintenance agreement after the included warranty period has expired. This ensures that you will receive software updates as well as assistance from Support.

Rental Licenses

If you need FEMFAT only for a certain time period (e.g. to cover peak capacities), a rental license is a good solution. We offer an annual rental price or licensing for shorter time periods down to one month. Maintenance and support are included during the rental period. The rental approach can be combined with purchased licenses to enable a flexible response to new tasks.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

LSP - License Service Providing

This model is the most flexible licensing option. Here, credit is deducted from a previously purchased credit account in dependence on the duration of the analysis. Accounting is accurate down to the tenth of a second. You can view and monitor the posted items via a portal.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

APA - ALTAIR Partner Alliance

FEMFAT is also available via the APA. Customers with Hyperworks rental licenses (version 12.0 or higher) can participate in this partner program. After registration, you can download FEMFAT and several enhancements such as the material database and the appropriate Abaqus interface from

University License

We offer special conditions for universities and colleges, such as the possibility of using FEMFAT free of charge if the licenses are used exclusively for teaching and research purposes and commercial use can be excluded.
