Webinar – Introduction to HyperSizer Express
7 February @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
4RealSim welcomes you to attend a webinar introducing HyperSizer Express.
HyperSizer Express – Easy to Use Laminate Optimization Software
HyperSizer Express is the fastest way to design manufacturable and lightweight laminates that satisfy all analyses for all load cases in minutes. Simply import your FEM and the software guides you through a process to generate global plies according to manufacturabilty rules and failure analysis checks. Your FEM is automatically updated with the sequenced plies and you can export this data to spreadsheets.
HyperSizer Express provides the composite engineer an easy to use software interface along with robust optimization for strength, stability, and stiffness helping you to achieve the lightest weight and better performance.
The most frequent use case for HyperSizer Express is to optimize the design of a composite or metal part by determining the optimum thicknesses, ply shapes, ply angles, stacking order, and sandwich cores. Applicable for hand layups like a bike frame, or robotic AFP/ATL like a space launch tank.
Ply Boundary Optimization
Determining ply boundaries is challenging in composite design. Tailoring ply boundaries by optimizing organic ply shapes to the load path saves weight but increases manufacturing costs. Express optimizes ply boundary patterns interactively. The user can trade weight vs. manufacturability in real-time by visualizing the proposed ply shapes on the mesh.
Once ply boundaries are established, the stacking sequence of the global laminate plies is optimized.
HyperSizer Express satisfies all strength and closed form buckling failure criteria during the optimization. These analyses are described below. Additionally, Express can extract FEA eigenvalue solutions and identify which elements are in the buckling mode to stiffen just them. The user can also identify a displacement limit for any grid in the FEM.
