For the problem of the electrolytic tank cracks caused by thermal stress appearing in the operation process, a finite element pre-treatment procedure written in VB is developed to analyze the three-dimensional temperature field and temperature stress of the electrolytic tank. The model input files to be imported to ABAQUS to analyze the electrolytic tank's temperature field and thermal stress problem can be quickly generated, with different sizes, different materials, different climates and different liquid level heights according to a few parameters form the interface. This procedure is simple to operate and suitable for batch size, batch condition of electrolytic cell rapid analysis. By means of the distribution law of temperature field and thermal stress, the main factors affecting the change are analyzed to provide a theoretical guidance for the design of the electrolytic cell and prolong its service life.
