Mecway is a comprehensive user friendly finite element analysis package for Windows with a focus on mechanical and thermal simulation such as stress analysis, vibration and heat flow. It has an intuitive graphical interface for mesh creation and display of solutions.
MECWAY FORUM: ” I’ve discovered that Mecway runs well on Linux under Wine with minimal workarounds (use `winetricks dotnet20sp1 tahoma` in a fresh WINEPREFIX beforehand). The winehq.org page is as follows: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=17181
It actually runs much better than on VirtualBox (as described in http://mecway.com/forum/discussion/86/mecway-on-mac-osx-using-virtualbox#latest); rendering is very fast and there are no graphical glitches.
I suspect that it would also run on OS X using the same workaround but I did not try it.”
