Can solidworks simulation show results of stresses on a square tank when
filled with water.
You'd have to apply a curve to the pressure as the depth increases.
I used simulator express, I took one side of the tank and fixed all edges assuming the welds will hold, the pressure in the tank will be 4 psi, so I put a force of 4 psi on the face of the tank wall. simulation showed the wall bulging out about .063 inches. we built the tank and filled it with water, the sides bulged out about .063 inches.
can you share us the images, how you have done FEA
how have you fixed the tank?
