Optimization Design of Large-Scale Cross-Roller Slewing Bearing Used in Special Propeller
According to the working requirement of large-scale cross roller slewing bearing used in special propeller, an optimal design model which includes objective function, optimization variables and constraints is established, and uses genetic toolbox of the Matlab software to solve the mathematical model. An example shows that the bearing’s life is improved significantly by the optimization. It indicates that the optimization design has some guidance significance in the design process of the slewing bearing.
