Pressure Vessel

      I am trying to solve a simple problem. I have a 1/4 of an enclosed cylindrical pressure vessel with hemispherical ends. When I put a pressure on the inside of the vessel and then fix the displacements on the short ends of the cross section as shown. It says I have an unconstrained model. I dont know why. I know is is not a good model of a cylinder at this point it should act like a beam with a pressure load. What am I missing. Thanks

      Make one more plane through the center to have 3 planes and a 1/8 model, then you will have the model fully constrained.


      Also, use at least 2 elements through the thickness of the body. Try to use a mesh Method if Sweep through the thickness, then you can have 4 ore more elements through the thickness.
