The Method of Parametric Design of Mixing Blades Based on Subdividing Functions
In order to improve the comprehensive performance of concrete truck mixer, considering the kinetics between concrete and blade, a parametric design model is built to find the relation between the parameters of the blade and performance. Based on subdividing function, the drum is divided into different parts called helix, the helix is designed as different blades for each part, then all the blades are combined into a complete helix. According to the design requirements (slump, the bevel angle of the drum), the corresponding blades are created. The simulation and engineering test show that this parametric design model can improve the comprehensive performance, besides, this method provide a new way to solve the detail design problem between multiphase and blade.
