Abstract


In the present study, by using the FEM finite element method, a series of toroidal pressure vessels will be constructed and a comparative analysis will be carried out to determine the type of composite material that offers the best resistance that supports the stresses and stresses. deformations that a container subjected to different pressure levels could suffer. By using the ANSYS software and with the respective APDL code, the models to be compared are built; the tests are carried out virtually in a simulated environment, which allows us to approach a real environment, apply computational engineering criteria to have a greater precision in the measurements made in the geometry combined with the type of material, with the pressure load and with the angular orientation of the sheets within a laminate. In this study, the code required to create the geometry of the container is exposed, as well as the way in which the data of the material and the corresponding model of the element to be used are entered, as well as the way in which the application is applied. finite element model and the mesh to be used. The final objective is to determine the angular orientation with a determined number of carbon fiber sheets so that the toroid reaches an acceptable resistance by a criterion of failure, which allows to minimize the waste of material and excess weight at an appropriate cost.
