Structural Non-Linear Analysis: Simulating Sealing Applications
Seals are mechanical devices often used to connect two or more parts in order to prevent leakages. These highly critical components can be found in many facets of engineering today. Seals come in varied shapes, sizes and are often made of a variety of different materials, including metals and rubber. A failure of a seal can result in significant loss of time and money; in certain situations, it can even cause catastrophic damage. Seals often operate under extreme conditions such as high pressure and large changes in temperature. Understanding the effects of temperature changes at operating sealing pressures can help identify sealing failures. This webinar includes an overview of several mathematical material models provided by ANSYS to help engineers accurately examine stresses in seals.
