    Why is my simulation showing bulging at holes of a pressure vessel while applying pressure from the inside?

    Mark Mark

      Objective

      Simulate static fluid pressure inside container and measure stresses and deformations.

      Activities performed

      I have made a cuboid container with holes on one wall and run simulation with pressure of 500 psi applied on inner sides of the walls.

      Results obtained

      Bulging at the holes.

      Question

      Why is the bulging at holes where there is no material?
