finite element method-stress analysis of tubesheet of shell-&-tube heat exchange
October 12, 2006 10:54pm CST
I have undertaken a project. Its objectives are- 1) Stress(mechanical and thermal loads) analysis of tubesheets of shell-and-tube heat exchangers using manual finite element methods 2) Verification of the above stress analysis using ANSYS software. I would like to know about all the stresses that are to be taken into account while formulating the equations using finite element methods and other relevant information regarding my topic.
