Solid works Simulation Valve body proof load estimate

  1. 1. Solidworks Simulation Valve Body casting proof load estimate 05/20/2016 Don Blanchet 3B Associates USNNRL00127892-405
  2. 2. Model – cast steel
  3. 3. Meshed model
  4. 4. Meshed model openings blocked
  5. 5. Max stress under internal pressure load of 1500 psi Material yield point Exceeded locally
  6. 6. Local yielding Refined Adaptive mesh
  8. 8. Conclusion  For static pressure proof testing the internal pressure should not exceed 1500 psi.
