Finite Element Analysis of Stresses Caused by External Holes in Hydraulic Cylinders

Authors: A.N. El Kholy, M. A. Kamel, M. O. Mousa

This paper evaluates simulations of holes in the wall of cylinder. The stresses generated incrementally in Finite Element Method under internal pressure. The holes, which can consider as a stress raiser, established in external surface. The effect of the hole depth, which varied between 0.5 to 4.5 mm, and the hole diameter, which varied between 1 to 2.5 mm, on the generated stresses are presented. It was found that, the hoop stress increase due to increase of the hole parameter, diameter and depth. Moreover, the characterizations of notch used to determine the maximum stress limit.
