Modelling a Lap Joint
« on: March 09, 2012, 12:17:20 PM »

Whats the best way to model a lap joint in Hypersizer?

I've looked through the families within the Concept tab and can't find anything that makes sense for a lap joint.

Or is it easier to model within Abaqus and import?

I want to model a lap joint Hypersizer.  I see this question has already been asked but no replies?  All i see are stiffeners.  I thought this product was similar to A4EI.  Not sure how to address this.  Please help me otherwise I will go back to A4 EI

HyperSizer v6 does not have capability for bonded Lap Joints. The bonded joint analyses are implemented for stiffener to skin bond lines.
