I am newbie in simulation, be patient please...
I have to check wall thickness of some kind of water tank.
This will be some large barell, diameter 2meters, and 2 meters high.
Material - aluminum.
Tank will be filled (fully) by oil, c.a. 9kg/dm3.
Can somebody explain me step by step how to simulate behavior of walls of barrells? How to check how thick will be walls?
The best way is to do a hand calculation finding the hoop stress, etc. and designing it that way then check with FEA. Pull out a copy of Roark's for the formulas.
