    FEA on Welding Bead

    Won Lek Chua

      Hi,

       

      I need to do the FEA on a water tank.

       

      My supervisor said he is interested to know whether the welding is strong enough or not. But when I run the Mesh, the welding bead gives a lot of problem.

       

      Because it is a water tank, actually I am thinking to use shell mesh.

       

      But is that the correct way since my supervisor will ask me why don't I check the Welding in FEA?

       

      Also, what is the best method to represent the water weight in this kind of FEA? I know the weight will be 2000Kg.

      Any idea?

       

      Thanks.
