108: Bi-metallic Tube

Static Stress analysis of a bi-metallic tube subjected to internal pressure. Both non-linear contact and materials were used in the analysis. The analysis showed that the maximum stresses in the tube are above the yield strength of the material, with a small residual radial compression between the inner and outer tube after the internal pressure was reduced back to 0psi.
