Stress Analysis of Tube & Flat Flange

Stress analysis of tube & flat flange Note: Do not base your design decisions solely on the data presented in this report. Use this information in conjunction with experimental data and practical experience. Field testing is mandatory to validate your final design. Simulation helps you reduce your time-to-market by reducing but not eliminating field tests.
