How to analyze a pipe for internal pressure

This article uses Simulation and all the simulations in nTop have two requirements: FE Mesh and Boundary Conditions (BCs). Follow the instructions in the links below to prepare your model for simulation.

FE Mesh

Boundary Conditions (BCs)

Question:

How can I simulate a pipe with internal pressure?

Applies to:

  • Simulation

Answer:

1. Setup: The initial setup shows our imported pipe as well as the CAD Faces we've defined.

2. Meshing: Next, the FE Volume Mesh and FE Model are created to apply material properties.

3. Boundary Conditions: To finish the Static Analysis setup we apply the Boundary Conditions and then run the analysis.

4. Analysis: Using the Deformation scale slider, you can see the effects of the Pressure on the pipe.
