Weight Optimization and Finite Element Analysis of Pressure Vessel Due to Thickness

Authors(4) :-Rashmi S. Gaikwad, Mohammed Abdul Junaid, V. Sai Krishna, T. Keerthi Kumar

Finite Element Method’ is a mathematical technique used to carry out the stress analysis. In this method the solid model of the component is subdivided into smaller elements. Constraints and loads are applied to the model at specified locations. Various properties are assigned to the A pressure vessel is a closed container designed to hold gases or liquids at a pressure different from the ambient pressure. The end caps fitted to the cylindrical body are called heads. The aim of this paper to carry out detailed design & analysis of Pressure vessel used in boiler for optimum thickness, temperature distribution and dynamic behavior using Finite element analysis software. Model like material, thickness, etc. The model is then analyzed in FE solver. The results are plotted in the post processor. Paper involves design of a cylindrical pressure vessel to sustain 5 bar pressure and determine the wall thickness required for the vessel to limit the maximum shear stress. Geometrical and finite element model of Pressure vessel is created using CAD CAE tools. Geometrical model is created on CATIA V5R19 and finite element modeling is done using hyper mesh. ANSYS is used as a solver. Weight optimization of pressure vessel due to thickness using FEA.
