solids representative of typical mechanical parts. We consider the simulation of the following objects 6 Pressure Vessel 6 Angle Bracket OClevis Yoke 5-2 INTRODUCTION The close integration with DesignModeler and other solid modeling tools makes ANSYS
Simulation particularly well suited to the analysis of solids. We consider a few typical
examples in the tutorials that follow. 5-3 TUTORIAL 5A - CYLINDRICAL PRESSURE VESSEL A steel pressure vessel with planar ends is subjected to an internal pressure of 35 MPa.
The vessel has an outer diameter of 200 mm, an over—all length of 400 mm and a wall
thickness of 25 mm. There is a 25 mm ﬁllet radius where the interior wall surfacejoins
the end cap as shown in the ﬁgure below. The vessel has a longitudinal axis of rotational symmetry and is also symmetric with
respect to a plane passed through it at mid-height. Thus the analyst need consider only the
top or bottom half of the vessel. ...
