Finite Element Analysis of Rupture Disc

With the advent of computers many of the critical components of Engineering are being designed successfully using Finite Element Analysis. The rupture disc used for safety in Chemical & Petro- Chemical Industries is one of the critical components where the design has to be done for failure of the material than the usual design problem of Engineering Design which is designing for strength. The present paper considers discs that fail because of Tensile stresses. An attempt has been made to study the possibility of designing rupture discs using Finite Element Analysis using ANSYS Software.
