NLS Uses FEA Simulation to Support Tanker Truck Design

NLS Uses FEA on Tanker Truck

When designing pressure vessels for water, liquids or gases hand calculations based on first principles and rules of thumb based on standards are required.  Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a great tool to confirm these results and to also visualize how the pressure affects the vessel.  This FEA simulation does a great job in highlighting how the stress is concentrated along the seam from the tube to the end cap.
