HyperSizer for Aircraft
Originally developed specifically for airframes and now used for UAVs, commercial aircraft, space launch, and wind energy, HyperSizer CAE software performs 80% of the analyses required right out of the box. From preliminary design optimization for manufacturability to final FAA certification, the software uses the same analysis methods from beginning to end of the project - avoiding unexpected negative margins and weight growth. HyperSizer simultaneously analyzes and optimizes structural panel cross sectional dimensions, materials, and layups; substantially reducing weight and getting your design back on track with positive margins of safety for all load cases and failure modes. The analysis margins along with integrated test database correlation are documented in Microsoft Word Stress Reports including sample calculations.

Hybrid analysis: Making the most of FEA by leveraging traditional analysis
CW guest columinst Collin Petersen (Janicki Industries, Sedro-Woolley, WA, US) suggests the use of more traditional analysis methods, where it is sensible to do so, making your finite element analysis (FEA) significantly simpler in the process.
CAMX offers unprecedented new product access
CAMX 2014, Oct. 13-16 in Orlando, Fla., promises to be North America's largest ever composites trade show and conference. As a result, exhibitors are coming to the event with a wide array of new and existing materials, machinery, software and technology designed to help make composites fabrication faster, easier and more adaptable. CompositesWorld has been gathering information from CAMX exhibitors about what they will be featuring and introducing in their booths. This week's CAMX newsletter offers a preview of some of what you will find on the show floor.
