Finite Element Analysis of Rotary Kiln Cylinder
As the core equipment of the metallurgy, cement, chemical production enterprises, the mechanics status analysis of rotary kiln cylinder is paid close attention on engineering site because of its frequent damage and expensive maintenance cost. With two supporting the lime rotary kiln was studied in the paper, the cylinder shell, kiln lining and materials were looked as a whole system, the cylinder and kiln lining were modeled with lamination and partition, the various factors to stress of the kiln cylinder were researched, such as the cylinder axial thickness, the cylinder axial materials and materials in it, the finite element software ANSYS was used to analyze the structure stress and thermal stress distribution status of cylinder, the analysis results are helpful for the design and optimization of rotary kiln cylinder.
