HyperSizer Pro includes all the functionality of HyperSizer Basic plus the ability to couple the analysis to a finite element model. Abaqus, Ansys, and Nastran solvers are supported.
When the finite element model is imported, groups of elements with the same property ID are considered a structural component. Panel and beam concepts are defined in the same manner as HyperSizer Basic. During analysis, the element forces of each component are post-processed to compute the design-to loads. With the design-to loads known, the analysis (and optimization) proceeds in the same manner as HyperSizer Basic. After the analysis is complete, a new set of finite element property data is generated in ASCII format. This data is used to update the finite element model in order to update the FEA-computed load paths. This iterative process of sizing in HyperSizer and solving the finite element model is automated using HyperFEA.
