Analyzing & Optimizing Stiffened Panels / Re: PRSEUS analysis in Hypersizer?

Unfortunately no, PRSEUS support was removed from HyperSizer several versions back and is not supported in the current version.

Analyzing & Optimizing Stiffened Panels / PRSEUS analysis in Hypersizer?
« Last post by jhensley on November 07, 2023, 03:00:14 PM »
Is there an established methodology for PRSEUS analysis in Hypersizer? There are references online to an old rod stiffened panel feature specifically for PRSEUS, but it seems that was deprecated several years ago. Is there a good analogue to this feature in the current version of Hypersizer?

Hastelloy alloys are indeed quite remarkable! They're a group of nickel-based alloys known for their outstanding corrosion resistance and high-temperature strength. They're commonly used in industries such as chemical processing, oil and gas, aerospace, and more. What specific applications or questions do you have in mind?

You're right, User4! Hastelloy alloys are preferred in aerospace due to their excellent high-temperature strength and resistance to oxidation. They can withstand the harsh conditions encountered in jet engines and rocket propulsion systems.
I'm attempting to perform detailed sizing on composite panels and am able to generate effective laminates (7 candidates are produced). If I try to generate discrete laminates for the components I get an error message stating Error #3316, Laminates must be numbered 20000 through 29999. I've tried reducing the number of discrete lamiates to generate however the error still appears. Has anyone come across a similar error or does anyone know how to get around the issue. The issue is causing negative margins of safety to exist for about 20% of the components within the assembly

I'm trying to optimize a composite rectangular beam but when I pass from effective laminates to discrete laminates and perform the sizing it turns out a beam with same thickness for all walls (top, side and bottom).
All Cross-sectional linking options are deactivated, also sizing with effective laminates turned out different wall thicknesses.
I also tried to perform the sizing with metallic (isotropic) material and the results, as expected, were similar to effective laminates ( different wall thicknesses).
what is the problem?

Yes I can confirm I have full access to the project working folder.

Can you verify that you have read/write access to the project working folder?

Exactly. Use the laminate strain analysis method to implement a strain cut-off.
There's an example within the HME document.,_Composite,_Laminate-Based.HME.pdf

I am attempting to perform sizing on a non-fea project and I get the error shown below. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Can you elaborate on how to go about doing that? Do you mean modifying the material laminate allowables in the material (Strain: Compression Open Hole for example) to the target strain, then toggling on composite strength, laminate, compression, open hole failure analyses for example?
