Does anyone have a suggestion on how to simulate tubes when analyzing a tube sheet on a shell and tube TEMA type heat exchanger? I would rather not model each tube individually. I have thought of adding a hinge restraint to each tube hole but I am not sure that would simulate tubes properly on a fixed tube sheet exchanger.
Any suggestions would be helpful.

As the semiconductor industry races to keep pace with Mooreâ€™s Law, which regards the doubling of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits, lithography hardware systems are not always able to provide a quality image for creating circuits. Download Now
Current integrated circuit (IC) designs are complex, which can result in different voltages being located close to one another. To prevent time dependent dielectric breakdown (TTDB), it is essential to incorporate space rules within IC design. Download Now
