Supports’ Dynamical Optimized Design for the External Pipeline of Aircraft Engine
A three dimension model of some aircraft engine’s pipeline has been established to study dynamic characteristics of the pipeline under random excitation. The relationship between the supports’ parameters and the dynamic characters of the pipeline was also presented. In order to avoid the harmful resonance, depress the vibration level and reduce the dynamic stresses of the pipeline, a specific dynamical optimized method was proposed and the supports’ layout and parameters (location, quantity) were analyzed and optimized. The results show that 1) Under random excitation, the maximum stresses are located near the bushing with serious stress concentration and the ends of pipeline. Fracture failure easily occurs in these parts. 2) The supports’ optimized method of the pipeline proposed in this paper is reasonable and effective. And the optimized pipeline has less dynamic stress and better anti-vibration capability.
