During the course of the development of
LUSAS HPM software numerous models were created to validate results
obtained against manufactured items. LUSAS HPM results for models of
C-shaped laminates, exterior panels, cleated curved spars and curved
spars with ply-drop off all produced very good correlation with
experimental and manufactured test components.

correlation between LUSAS and manufactured part.
