Analysis of Bulb Turbine Hydropower Station Plant with 3D Finite Element Method
The overall structure of a hydropower plant with bulb tubular units is calculated and analysed in 6 kinds of load cases, and the maximum stresses in different directions and the positions where the maximum stresses appear in the hydropower plant structure. The conclusions show that the plant is safe and the design is reasonable.
