Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to...

  • determine which types of analyses are required for Design-by-Analysis of pressure equipment.
  • perform Design-by-Analysis calculations including the necessary Finite Element calculations.
  • evaluate the results of the analyses according to appropriate standards.

Subject of course

  • Finite Element analysis and ANSYS
  • Geometry of model, linear elastic analysis, stress distribution
  • Thermal analysis, thermal stress
  • Fatigue analysis
  • Global plastic deformation check
  • Shake down analysis
  • Stability (buckling) analysis

Teaching methods

Each lecture starts with a presentation, where the required basics for the exercises are developed. Afterwards, an example is carried out within the group. A similar example has to be analysed as homework. For the exercises, the PCs of the institute are available, and participants work on PCs. Usage of students own PCs is possible.
