The torsion bar is one of the major parts of converter tilting mechanism and is widely used for light weight, large energy stored in unit mass, simple structure, convenient arrangement without maintenance demand, etc. Results not only show the Ant Colony Algorithm is feasible and provides a new method choosing torsion bar diameter but also is satisfied.Based on maximum deformation energy and not exceeding the allowable stress values of a torsion-bar spring, the thesis builds the optimization model for the self-balancing torsion bar.
