Structural Analysis on Cylindrical Body Due to Wind Load


    • M Usman

      Hi everyone, hope you are going well. I have done structural analysis on the circular shape body using two different approaches that are listed as below;

      Cad Model Including Simplified Conceptual Cad  Model of Aluminum Frame  with PTFE Plate at Front

      Cad Model Including Actual Manufactured Cad Model of Aluminum Frame with PTFE Plate at Front


      Meshing is same in both cases

      Boundary Conditions- Body Weight, Fixed Support & Drag Force due to wind at Front Plate

      Want to check deformation & Von Mises Stresses

      Results in case of First Approach:

      Results in case of Second Approach:

      Please guide me about the difference in results on same problem 

      Why results are varying when problem is same, just approaches were changed?
