ST7-188.8.131.52 Analysis of Steel Vessel Subjected to Hot Dip Galvanising Process
This Webnote investigates the feasibility of using the Hot Dip Galvanising method to apply a protective zinc coating to a steel vessel. The process involves lowering the pre-heated vessel into a molten zinc bath, and withdrawing the vessel from the bath after a short period of immersion. The Strand7 API is used to facilitate the application of time-dependent loads that simulate the dipping process. The analysis aims to determine the thermally induced stress and resulting risk of developing cracks during the process.
