Optimization Design for Petroleum High Pressure Wellhead Gate Valve Stem Based on MATLAB
The optimization for petroleum high pressure wellhead gate valve stem is significant. Valve stem load calculation method is developed, and petroleum high pressure wellhead gate valve stem optimization model based on MATLAB is established, taking 2 9/16 inch 35MPa wellhead gate valve for an example, the stem weight decreases by 27%, consequently decreasing valve weight.
