Thin-walled cylinder brazier buckling simulation

Question asked by Colin Gardiner on Feb 25, 2020

I'm trying to simulate a long, cylindrical, thin-walled, fluid-filled, polyurethane tube (hose) being wrapped around a steel drum under tension. My goal is to identify if Brazier buckling criteria is being met where the tube contacts the drum. I have access to the non-linear simulation package; is it suitable for this application? Even without the the fluid-filled condition, drum contact, and wrapping under tension, will the non-linear simulation add-on identify Brazier buckling in pure-bending scenario?


Thanks in advance!
