Design Optimization and Buckling Analysis of Pressure Vessel
N.Karthik, M.Jaypal Reddy, M.NagaKiran, ,
Pressure vessels like pre-water heaters essentially heat exchangers that are used in closed power cycles. These pressure vessels are used to preheat the water fed into Boilers or heat the water before entering the boiler using expanded steam to increase the efficiency of the cycle. These heavy duty pressure vessels are in working condition throughout the year. The vessel strength will be reduced with time. This can be reduced by providing a winding coil around the vessel as a strip. The strip material will not affect the boiler but increases the life. The modeling was done by using Creo 2.0. Which is an advanced modeling software used in almost all the manufacturing industries. After the modeling the model was imported into the ANSYS 14.0. The linear buckling analysis of the pressure vessel will be done before and after the winding coil was placed at different load conditions and the maximum buckling load will be estimated. By considering some different type of materials to the mod el for showing the differences. Finally the results will be tabulated and graphs will be plotted.
