Richard’s chamber separator disk geometry, using delrin

An analysis of a CSD based on geometry specified by Richard Nakka. In this run delrin was used as the material, with the following properties:

Elastic modulus in X: 448803 psi
Poisson’s Ration in XY: 0.35
Tensile Strength in X: 10805 psi
Compressive Strength in X: 16824 psi
Yield Strength: 9355 psi

Loaded from the bottom with 1000psi, displacement plot:

Loaded from the bottom with 1000psi, FOS plot:

Loaded from the top with 1000psi, displacement plot:

Loaded from the top with 1000psi, FOS plot:

In short, it is insufficiently strong.
