Stress Simulation in cylinders

It is important to analyze stresses (radial and hoop stress) acting inside cylinders as a result of internal pressures (eg. say due to the flow of fluids). Making sure that the internal pressure does not result in component failure is an important consideration for any engineers.

SolidWorks does a great job of simulating these environments, allowing designers to run by their model without necessarily going through the tedious activities of fabricating a prototype.

We will do a simple demonstration on Continue reading
