Visual Design System Development of Wellhead’s High Pressure Valve


Article Preview

The article introduces the advantages and the application of the visual design, analyzes the tendency and shortage of product development about high pressure valve used in wellhead. Combining the visual design method with collaborative design idea, a visual design system is designed for high pressure valve used in wellhead, which includes three modules. The development process and function of the system is described in detail. Based on a great deal database and modularized collaborative design, basic geometric design, three-dimensional modeling, virtual assembly and finite element analysis (FEA) on chief parts are finished successfully. Practice indicated that the visual design system was an effective measure to improve efficiency of design, meet the demand of the development of product serialization, and reduce the cycle of development of product, reduce the cost.
