No, core ramps are not supported in Express. The core ramp analysis is performed with a plugin package which requires HyperSizer Pro.

See: https://hypersizer.com/help_7.3/#Udef/Plugin-HS_plugins_core_ramp.php%3FTocPath%3DAnalysis%2520Plugins%7CPublished%2520Plugin%2520Packages%7C_____4

In addition to the Core Ramp plugin PRO takes into account the effect of the core ramp for core shear analyses (AID 107-109) and the flatwise tension with interlaminar shear interaction failure analysis (AID 104). Is this still true for Express?

Express does not use the element core tapers.
