This article uses Simulation/Optimization and both of them in nTop have two requirements: FE Mesh and Boundary Conditions (BCs). Follow the instructions in the links below to prepare your model for simulation.
Boundary Conditions (BCs)
How can I simulate a pipe with internal pressure?
1. Setup: The initial setup shows our imported pipe as well as the CAD Faces we've defined.
2. Meshing: Next, the FE Volume Mesh and FE Model are created to apply material properties.
3. Boundary Conditions: To finish the Static Analysis setup we apply the Boundary Conditions and then run the analysis.
4. Analysis: Using the Deformation scale slider, you can see the effects of the Pressure on the pipe.
And that’s it! You’ve successfully setup an internal pressure analysis.
