Is it possible to analyze the effects of an hermetically sealed object with RFEM?


To analyze a gas-tight object, it must be modeled in RFEM first. Then, you can create a new solid from the boundary surfaces. In this case, it is necessary to select the "Gas" solid type and it must have the corresponding material (see Figure 01). In the "Gas" tab (see Figure 02), you can define additional gas parameters. As a result, the resulting gas pressure, the overpressure and the initial pressure can be graphically displayed for the gas solid. Furthermore, the Results navigator provides the deformed volume of the gas as well as its temperature.
