Storage vessel stress analysis using ansys

  1. Nov 5, 2015 #1
    I have to model a storage vessel in ansys and perform stress analysis for it. I have no idea about which element types I will need for the analysis. I have calculated the design dimensions for the vessel. I am a beginner at ansys and know only how to deal with simple structural and thermal problems.

    Is this a continuation of your recent thread about pressure vessel ?

    Pleases post a drawing of what you have done so far .

    Read the ANSYS element guide. They explain all the element types and when to use them
