To perform structural analysis of the gate valve at room temperature and predict stress concentration at concerned regions.
The accurate CAD model created by Hi-Tech’s engineering team was utilized to perform structural analysis, to investigate stress concentration across the valve assembly as well as individual components and its impact on the deformation values.
To ensure meaningful simulation results, the first priority was to develop an accurate CAD model and later use the model for simulation purposes. An important aspect of the simulation was to ensure that the boundary conditions matched with that of the real world situations, which was accomplished by expert analysts at Hi-Tech.
The structural analysis performed on the valve assembly as well as individual components, provided useful insights on stress generation and deformation values. A detailed evaluation was done to figure out stress concentration on concerned areas of the valve assembly, and the design was found to be within the safe stress limits.
