# Instrumented Pressure Vessel Stress Analysis Using Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

**The Instrumented Pressure Vessel (IPV) shown below was subjected to an external pressure of 1500 psi (10.2 mPa).
This is equivalent to a seawater depth of 3375 ft (1029 m).**

**A Finite Element Analysis (FEA) was performed on this IPV using SOLIDWORKS
SIMULALTION.**

#### PRESSURE VESSEL FEA, EXTERNAL PRESSURE = 1500 PSI (10.3 mPa)

## IPV Subjected to an External Pressure of 1500 PSI (10.3 mPa)

The image above shows the FEA results of the IPV when subjected to a pressure of 1500 psi (10.3 mPa). The maximum stress is shown to be about 12.7 ksi (87.3 mPa). This is about 32% of the IPV's material yield strength.
