Pressure vessel, FEA


In chemical processes viscosity of fluid is important fluid property. To maintain viscosity of the fluid stored heat is used. The viscosity of the fluid varies with temperature. If the temperature drops the fluid becomes viscous and can cause considerable damage to the system. However if we heat from below, at time surface cooling occurs and this makes natural convection stop, and the heat never reaches the Top layers. Hence to avoid this heat pipes are inserted from top to ensure efficient distribution of heat. Heat is supplied in these pipes itself so that maximum benefit of heat transfer is achieved. The main objective of paper is finite element analysis of pressure vessel at different boundary condition. The stresses developed in pressure vessel are analyzed by using ANSYS.
