The Flow Analysis of Automotive Power Steering Gear Assembly Based on Fluent
In allusion to the problem that the newly developed pumping units using for automotive power steering gear assembly can not clean the inside oil, the paper takes the key flow channel as the research object, establishes the 3D geometrical model, meshes it, and then uses the Fluent software to simulate and analysis the flow. After setting different working conditions as diverse pressures of the import and export, the paper gets some visual results of the flow velocity vector and the flow pressure vector. At last, according to the characteristic diagrams of the flow received from the stimulation, the paper gives some theoretically explanation to the phenomenon of remaining a small quantity of oil and provides an important basis to set some important parameters of the pumping machine. Meanwhile, it gives some reference significance for the optimization design of steering gear.
