main imageProblem Statement

A 3D solid model for the cover of a pressure cylinder is designed which can hold up a pressure of 0.5 MPa. The model is made up of aluminum alloy. It is required to find alternative material to manufacture pressure cylinder cover. This case deals with material – Engineering Plastic being substituted for aluminum alloy.



The purpose of the simulation is to assess the possibility of replacing the aluminum
