provides a holistic analysis and design tool for two-dimensional structures. With today’s availability of powerful virtual 3-D and parametric environments, the following question arises: can a fully three-dimensional version of thrust-line analysis provide the same freedom to explore the infinite equilibriumFile Size: 2MB.

Finite element analysis results are also compared with existing analytical solutions for cylindrical grains reinforced by metallic casing under thermal, vertical storage and internal pressure loads. Finite element analysis has been performed on several practical complex grain Cited by: Thus it was seen that each cooling-heating cycle produced the same temperature response and that thermal analysis of a single cycle accurately represented any cycle during the life of a thrust chamber.
