Finite Element Analysis

  1. Apr 6, 2008 #1
    This summer i have an internship that expects me to write a program to analyze this inflatable vacuum chamber. The advisor wants to be able to put in a geometry and see if it will be stable. Would finite element analysis programs be able to do this? If so which one should I look into getting?

    I have never heard of an inflatable vacuum chamber

    Well I guess it is going to be a function of the inner surface outer surface and the pressure of the surrounding cell. I am not sure about the FEM.

    What would be the purpose for this devise?
