Linear Multi-Body Analysis

By

Connections such as flanges, tri-clamps and any other multi-body assemblies are analyzed using FEA. This example shows a Tri-Clamp connection under internal pressure and describes how FEA is used to provide insight into the interaction between components.

Reversed Dished Head

By

This reverse dished head could not be fabricated thick enough to meet the ASME VIII-1 rules. The chosen solution was to reinforce the head with ribs to prevent snap through. Various alternate methods of analysis are shown.

Pressure Analysis of a Flange

By

This basic sample illustrates how FEA is used to validate a flange design that cannot be calculated with standard VIII-1 Appendix 2 code rules due to the shape of its hub. Standard Appendix 2 loads are applied and assessed against the rules of ASME VIII-2 for full code compliance.

Thermal Analysis

By

FEA can calculate temperature profiles in single and multi-part models. From this, displacements and stresses are obtained. Here FEA is used to determine heat time and required power for an injection mold.
