Stress Analysis of a Pipe Fitting with LiveLink™ for PTC Creo Parametric™

Application ID: 102831

This tutorial model shows the setup of a 2D axisymmetric stress analysis, through contact, of a 3D threaded pipe fitting.

The example involves synchronizing the 3D PTC Creo Parametric™ geometry and selections, which specify the faces in contact, with the 2D geometry in COMSOL Multiphysics®. A cutting plane is defined in COMSOL Multiphysics® to create the 2D geometry from the synchronized 3D objects. The model setup is simplified by using the synchronized selections that are available on the 2D geometry.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
