Collier Research Corp. (Hampton, Va.) has released HyperSizer v.4.7 automated structural detail analysis, local sizing optimization and weight prediction composite software. This version has new capabilities including closed cross-section beams (rectangular, circular and elliptical tube shapes), laminate-based strain allowables using both the angle minus load (AML) and Boeing polynomial equation methods, and a new margin-of-safety stress reporting in Word format. It also provides advanced capabilities in support of various other NASTRAN-based software products. The company also announced an April 2006 release date for HyperSizer v4.8, with new capabilities that will include Test Data Driven Reliability Analysis (Stochastic Optimization) that reportedly provides both greater structural integrity as well as additional weight reduction.
