Improved Hydraulic Power Steering Pump Design Using Computer Tools 2005-01-1269

A hydraulic steering pump system will be considered in this report. The objective is to improve the design of a specific power steering pump using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tools.
The first part of this report deals with a pump oil seal leak. The thermal and fluid environments have been simulated. A variable fluid viscosity is used, showing a 15-20% increase in peak temperature. Potential improvements in product design have been suggested.
The second part deals with using computer tools to reduce redundant testing. This includes use of parametric approach towards optimization. A rotating grid approach (basic moving mesh technique) is used.
