Hi

I have a layered section which is created from a surface body.
I need to find the safety factor on this panel ( the panel is CFRP sandwiched around a foam core) however when I select the safety factor tool the following error message appears:
"You have chosen an invalid result for the current analysis"

Does this mean that the safety factor tool doesn't work for layered sections?
How can I therefore ensure that my panel has a safety factor on static failure of at least two as required by the design?

I don't have much hope of an answer, but if you see this, do u remember how did you do it?
