Structural Analysis and Cost Estimation of Reactor Pressure Vessel

P. Ravikanth Raju [2] | K. Chinna Maddaiah


Abstract: A pressure vessel is a closed container which is used to hold gases or liquids at high pressures substantially different from the ambient pressure. Pressure can be caused by the reaction or it is created by an external source, like hydrogen in catalytic transfer hydrogenation. Shell, heads and nozzles are the main components of the reactor pressure vessel. In this work a reactor pressure vessel is to be created using CAD tool (creo-2) and then it is to be analyzed in ANSYS workbench. The analysis is to be carried out for materials of reactor pressure vessel with same boundary conditions. Deformations, stress, strain energy and safety factor values are to be found for different reactor pressure vessels. In this work an attempt has been made to estimate the cost of each reactor pressure vessel also. From this work, the efficient reactor pressure vessel is to found based on the values of strength to weight ratios and cost of the pressure vessel.


Keywords: Reactor pressure vessel, external source, safety factor, strain energy, strength to weight ratio
