This demo illustrates the connection between KIMEME and AMEsim to optimize the dimensions and characteristics of a check valve model in order to match a given pressure/flow characteristic.

DESIGN VARIABLES

Stroke:  [1..10] mm

Spring Preload:  [0..100] N

Stiffness:  [0..100] N/mm

Seat diameter:   [1..25] mm

Ball diameter:   [1..30] mm

CONSTRAINTS

Ball diameter must be greater than the seat diameter

OBJECTIVES

Minimize error (ISE) betweed actual flow rate valve and desired target (respectively green and black)

OPTIMIZATION ALGORITHM

Nelder-Mead method

RUNS

1500 evaluations, with parallel execution on 4 workstations using KIMEME Network. Execution time: 60 minutes.
