Simulation and Optimization Analysis of External Spur-Gear Pump Shell


Article Preview

In order to research the external spur-gear pump shell, use of ANSYS software to make strength analysis, through the simulation to get displacement deformation clouds and equivalent stress clouds,and find shell the maximum displacement deformation position and the maximum stress position.The optimization results show that in the shell security meet conditions, its quality was reduced by 5.9%, the stiffness of the shell has been improved greatly.At the same time,noise of the pump has been reduced, extending the service life of the pump. The study conclusion for improving the gear pump structure design and perfecting its mechanical performance provides theory basis.
