640: Tube Plate Return Bend

Linear-Elastic Static Finite Element Stress Analysis of a tube plate return bend. Loads included internal pressures and elevated temperatures. Stresses due to the loads were compared against allowables from ASME standards, and verified the design passed these standards. Recommendation given to include stress linearisations when analysing the design at its design pressures and temperatures.
