 October 7, 2010, 05:29 stress analysis -Von Mises Theory #1 New Member   hc Join Date: May 2010 Location: Perth, Australia Posts: 11 Rep Power: 7 Hi, I'm doing a 2D modelling stress analysis on a typical cylinder with internal pressure Using blockMeshDict Solver-solidDisplacementFoam -foamCalc components sigma I would like to know whether I can obtain the result for Von Mises Theory. I have all the stress-->xx, yy, xy and so on but nor von mises. In fact, in ANSYS can get the result for von mises. Another way which I can find von mises is by taking the stress-> xx, yy and xy result as a function and put them into the von mises equation. Not sure whether OpenFoam able to do this or not. Hope to hear from you guys if you have any idea on this. Regards watashiwa curious

Ye there probably aren't many people that use OpenFOAM for stress analysis, compared to the amount of people using it for CFD. But there are a few groups that I know of that use it, in Ireland (where I am) and Croatia. Philip

 October 14, 2010, 21:01 #6 New Member   hc Join Date: May 2010 Location: Perth, Australia Posts: 11 Rep Power: 7 Hi , Hi I did a comparison using ANSYS(classic) and OpenFOAM. The result seems to be opposite in ANSYS to what I am getting in OpenFOAM. However, both gives the same colour profile especially when I analyzed stress xx, yy, xy and von mises. Von mises in ANSYS shown identical pattern when compare with OpenFOAM. I have verified my result thick wall cylinder in OpenFOAM with the thoeretical result which is correct but not for ANSYS. As I have mentioned the value obtained in ANsys seems not right but have the identical colour pattern. I will further investigate this.
