SOLIDWOKS Simulation: Nonuniform Force and Pressure Loading in Cylindrical Coordinate Systems

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

In a previous post “SOLIDWOKS Simulation – Nonuniform Force and Pressure Loading“, I showed how to apply a nonuniform pressure boundary condition to analyze the integrity of the glass walls of an aquarium. We varied the water pressure with depth by referencing a rectangular coordinate system (CS). Let’s look at nonuniform pressure loading using the second option for nonuniformity, a cylindrical CS. We’ll examine the steel horizontal storage tank shown below (approximately 4 ft. diameter by 12 ft. long) exposed […]

A Pressure Vessel study combines results of multiple loads and understand behavior of any cross section as per ASME standards. A typical load includes internal pressure, temperature rise and earthquake loads. So to start with a user will create different static studies to understand design behavior under each load type (pressure, temperature, etc).   Using SOLIDWORKS Simulation users can easily study the effect of multiple loads on designs.     Once a Pressure Vessel Design is run, users can use […]
