Abstract: Bourdon-type pressure devices are used to detect pressure in industrial installations and pressure monitoring systems. Bourdon tubes are manufactured in various engineering shapes like circular-C, helix, and spiral, to serve the use of this tube in terms of positioning and accuracy. The tip of the Bordoun tube is a pressure-sensitive element. The applied input pressure causes the tube tip to be shifted or translated from the initial position. In this study, the pressure measurement in Bordoun tube was simulated at different sections and different axial ratios of multiple metals to obtain the best tube tilp deviation using the Solidworks program. Simulation results expressing the differentiation of tip travel values using four materials, three axial ratios, and four cross-section types. The results show that best material in terms of maximum tip travel was Zinc AZ-12, and for any material and regular wall thickness, the axial ratio (0.3) gives the best response. Also, the results show other materials’ response and effect of change axial ratio.
