Express Software Simulates Aerospace-Grade Composite Parts

April 7, 2016
Express software performs FEA on parts with composite laminates.

Collier Research has released an Express version of its Hypersizer finite-element-analysis (FEA) software for developing high strength-to-weight ratio composite designs. Hypersizer Express includes the same margins of safety and material simulations as the Pro version. It incorporates a new interface to easily form efficient composite designs.

Generally speaking, HyperSizer knows composites. It can analyze a FEA part that is directly imported to show the user where composite laminate plies would benefit the design for static- and dynamic-loading requirements. Its user-friendly interface allows users to try different composites and orientations, virtually place the part under loads, and observe the areas of stress on that part.

Available at a significantly lower price than most composite software, HyperSizer Express offers aerospace-grade capabilities to a wide audience of engineers and product designers to create strong, lightweight final products.
