Fabrication of a Low Pressure Vessel, Low Pressure Vessel


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 research is to carry out detailed design & analysis of a pressure vessel for the application of air storage. It is a low pressure vessel since the internal pressure is 1.48 MPa. In this research paper geometrical and finite element model of Pressure vessel has been created using ANSYS 15.0 software. Optimization process has been also applied using ANSYS 15.0 by screening method. This optimized value reduces the stresses (13.10 % for head & 9.088 % for shell) in the pressure vessel, which will increase the life of the pressure vessel and reduce the chances of bursting the pressure vessel. The optimized value of mass reduces the weight (18.57% for shell), hence reduce the material cost of the vessel. Also using optimized values of shell and head obtained by screening method Pressure vessel has been fabricated.
