Optimized Sealing of an Axle Cover Pan Gasket Using Robust Engineering Methods 2006-01-0739

Axle cover pan bolted joint sealing with a fiber composition gasket material can be challenging to achieve leak-free sealing. A project was conducted to optimize a stamped steel cover pan/fiber composition gasket static sealing ability by utilizing the Taguchi Robust Engineering method [2]. An analytical FEA modeling approach in combination with the Robust Parameter Design technique [1, 2] was utilized to evaluate and optimize the stamped cover pan crown embossment geometry shape.
