AFEM is a "fit-for-purpose" engineering development toolkit designed to support the use of high-order structural analysis during the early phases of aircraft conceptual design.
As a development toolkit, it provides the engineer with a flexible, modular, and extensible library of components and tools to rapidly build a useful structural model. It is not an end-user GUI application, but rather a library enabling engineers to rapidly build their own application-specific tools and processes, encoding their own design rules and best practices along the way.
