Design and Implementation of MDO Integrated System for Valve Products
In view of the demands in multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO) of valve products, the MDO model for valves is established, which takes account of mechanical analysis, fluid mechanics analysis, thermal-mechanical coupled analysis and seismic analysis. On this basis, the MDO integrated system is constructed combined with some new techniques to solve the common and critical problems of optimal design of valves. The system takes interplay and coupling of each discipline into account, applies effective optimization strategy, information transmitting and concurrent design to get the synergistic effect produced by interaction of each discipline, and finally obtains the total optimum solution of valves, which, moreover, could provide technical reference for the practicality and commercialization of the integrated system in valves design optimization.
