Optimization Design of Finger Seal Performances Based on Game Theory
To reach the expecting goal of lower leakage ratio and longer operation life(lower wear ratio) for finger seal, great efforts have been made continuously to obtain good structure of finger seal with advanced optimization design technology. A cooperation Nash equilibrium mathematical model of multi-objective optimization for finger seal is presented in current work based on Nash equilibrium of game theory. In this solution, the reciprocal of leakage ratio and the wear ratio value for finger seal are thought as the payoff functions and the game is solved by genetic algorithm. The numerical simulation in the paper shows that the finger seal with better performances can be achieved by using Nash equilibrium method. This means Nash equilibrium method can be used as a new multi-objective optimization method for finger seal performances optimization.
