2-dimensional axisymmetric and 3-dimensional finite element stress analysis of the LHA-1 class superheater header/
Kitchin, Doyle R.
MetadataShow full item record
ADINA, a finite element program for automatic dynamic incremental nonlinear analysis, is used to conduct a stress analysis of the Tarawa class (LHA-1) superheater header. This investigation is sponsored by the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) as a result of cracking in the superheater header tube attachment weld. A 2-dimensional solid axisymmetric finite element model was developed using both a coarse and fine mesh. Both pressure and thermally induced stresses were studied. A 3-dimensional solid finite element model was developed and a preliminary stress analysis conducted.
