Evaluating Sealing Quality in a Bolted Pressure Vessel — Lesson 2

In this lesson, we will learn how to use various contact trackers such as contact pressure, contact status etc. to determine whether or not a bolted pressure vessel has been sealed adequately. We will do a parametric study to perform design iterations by varying the bolt diameter, and see its effect on seal performance.
