Hi everyone; I want to know if we are able to use composite fabrics in composite optimisation? I mean, composite fabric = a layer that consist of different oriented fibers and sewed together. Composite manufacturers sell them like this. In all hypermesh composite optimisation tutorials, they use individual plies which are fibers in one direction only. I want to use different fabrics (one is 45,-45,90 - 600 grams and 0.5mm - the other is 45,-45,60,-60 800 grams and 0.75mm for example), and conduct free-size, size and shuffling optimisations using these fabrics. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks in advance for anyone replies.
Hi, i'm trying to put some NSM (non-structural mass) in my model. I'm using the Nastran interface of Hypermesh. I already set the value in the PCOMP property shell. What I have to do now? If i simply mesh my surface, NSM is not counted when I checky the total mass using the available utility. Why? Thanx, cheers Simone
