Parameterized Finite Element Analysis for Quick-Opening Supercritical Fluid Extraction Kettle
In consideration of the similarities of supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) kettles, the parameterized finite element analysis system was developed based on ANSYS and Visual Basic. The parameterized model building, stress analysis and fatigue analysis for shell, nozzle and quick-opening sealing structure were realized by second development of ANSYS using APDL language. The program which can deal with design parameters was developed based on Visual Basic, and the command stream files, which can be recognized by ANSYS, were modified according to design parameters and sent to ANSYS solver by the program. With the system, the stress and fatigue analysis process for SFE kettle is simplified and the analysis efficiency of SFE kettle is improved.
