The Simulation about the Reliability and Fatigue Analysis of Tower at Connecting Region of Cylinder and Skirt

Abstract:

Article Preview

The reliability and fatigue analysis of tower at the connecting region of cylinder and skirt are very significance to tower safety. Because of large size, the common way by experimental analysis is almost impossible to achieve. In this article, to the distillation tower using in some petro-chemical company of Xinjiang, the stress and strain analysis, reliability and fatigue analysis at the connecting region of cylinder and skirt are performed by FEM. Based on the conclusions above, the main parameters which affect reliability are determined and some suggestions about structure optimization are proposed.
