1d finite element beam modelling for pipe

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica:

HI , the query is related to FE modelling of 1d Euler bernouli beam for pipe

If a pipe is modeled as a beam ,how can we input or account for the internal pressure of pipe.

What is the quantity and the direction of nodal loads

Should a load = Pressure x Pipe sec Area be applied to all nodes??

Thank You.

Physical pendulum

Hello,

I want to calculate the force of a physical pendulum with the 1.09Kg mass which is released from 91° angle and hits an object. I have set mgh=1/2mv^2 then W=1/2mv^2  (W=F*X) where x is the circel sector the pendulum travels from 91° to 0° , the pendulum hits the object at 0°, is the formula below correct to calculate the the force that hits the object?

F=(1/2mv^2)/x ??

Best regards

Ali

Abaqus CFD

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica:

Hello,

I have a 6mm straight tube which is pressureized to 8bar dry air, then the pressure is

released to 2 bar and the time is measured. (pressure drop duration)

I wonder if this problem is possible to analyize in Abaqus CFD?

In abaqus CFD i can assign 8 bar pressure at one end of the tube and 2 bar at

the other end but then i wonder if Abaqus will adjust the velocity to achieve this

solution during the specified step time, if this is the case then i will not

be able to get the correct time?
