Shape Optimization of Metal Welded Bellows Seal Based on the Turing Reaction-Diffusion Model Coupled with FEM
In this paper, the Turing reaction-diffusion model coupled with Finite Element Method (FEM) is implemented first by considering the biomechanical model iBone (Imitation Bone). Then the shape optimization of Metal Welded Bellows Seal (MWBS) is conducted based on the biomechanical bone forming process by considering the osteoclasts and osteoblasts process. The MWBS mass and shape is changed by changing the initial boundary condition, then some reasonable results are obtained by keeping the required forming value, and the new S type wave of metal welded bellow of mechanical seal are obtained. Finally, the strength evaluations are conducted for new optimized S type model and original V and S type models by using the FEM software.
