Composite pressure vessel in ABAQUS
This training package professionally provides tips for designing and simulating type 3 and 4 composite pressure vessels. It should be noted that the WCM plug-in is widely used to simulate these vessels. In this package, various winding methods of simulation methods of composite pressure vessels are presented. As you know, composite pressure vessels have variations in angle and thickness in the dome area depending on the type of winding method. This training package teaches scripting for automatic simulation of composite pressure vessels with three methods of geodetic, semi-geodetic, and planar winding. The use of adhesive between the liner and the composite part helps to investigate leakage from the pressure inside the tank. UMAT subroutine is also examined to identify the failure initiation and continuation of the failure based on a PUCK criterion.
