Article Preview

In this paper are illustrated the principal aspects connected with the numerical evaluation of thermal stress induced by LNG (liquefied natural gas) in a concrete tank. In order to investigate the thermal induced tensile stresses, the ANSYS finite element code has been employed for performing a sequential, non linear, transient thermal-structural analysis, taking into account the thermal dependant properties of the concrete such as thermal conductivity and specific heat. Temperature distribution data of thermal analysis is required in the coupled field analysis finally to obtain and analyze thermal stresses.
