HyperFEA and Composites form result?
« on: April 18, 2013, 02:51:17 AM »
Dear Everyone,

When we use "composite Form" 6steps to find the best laminates between components. the laminates are our design result and can export to Excel or Fibersim to form production document.

but we use "HYperFEA" to optimatize the design, the result may be different from "Composite form".  so the "Composite form" result is not any function?!!!

i have some confustion about it...

The blending/compatibility functionality (Step 3, Step 5) is not used in HyperFEA. HyperFEA will only size the component using the candidate effective/discrete laminates  visible in the Variables tab. These candidate effective/discrete laminates can be generated using the Composites form (Step 1 and Step 4).

HyperFEA can be run incrementally throughout the composite optimization process to make sure the load path has been converged.
