Analyzing composite layups in Simulation and applying factor
of safeties to the composite does not work for two different
surfaces defined by two different numbers of composite plies.
Given two surfaces of plies m and n, where n is less than m:
The "Worst-case across all plies" tool will show the correct
distribution for the surface with (m) plies . The "Worst-case
across all plies" tool shows all of the surface with (n) plies as
having a 0 factor of safety. Upon closer look it is saying that the
failure is occurring on a ply that does not exist (n+1).
It appears to be a bug. It is a massive pain to scroll through
numerous plies to determine the min FOS. Is there a way around this
or better yet a way to properly fix this?
