In this study, mussel collecting apparatuses with different hole diameters were designed and stress and deformation analyzes were carried out with the finite element method depending on different pressure values. Stress analyzes were calculated using the finite element method. The apparatuses were designed in three dimensions with the help of solid model drawing programs. As a result of numerical analysis, the stress and deformation values created by the hole diameters on the apparatus were compared depending on the different pressure values applied. In addition, the maximum and minimum stress and deformation values on the apparatus were determined visually. Thus, ideas about where the damages that may occur during the use of the apparatus can occur can be determined. To perform numerical analysis, software including ANSYS finite element method was used. In addition, SOLIDWORKS drawing programs were used for three-dimensional designs. It is aimed to contribute to the homogeneous and rapid storage of mussels of equal size by designing special-sized apparatus for collecting mussels of the desired size.
