A Fast 3D Inverse Design Based Multi-Objective Optimization Strategy for Design of Pumps

Written by Prof. Mehrdad Zangeneh and K. Daneshkhah, Advanced Design Technology Ltd.

What's inside?

A methodology for designing pumps to meet multi-objective design criteria is presented in this paper. The method combines a 3D inverse design method with a multi-objective genetic algorithm to design pumps which meet various aerodynamic and geometrical requirements.

By using the 3D inverse design method, it is possible to perform 3D multi-objective optimization with few design parameters, while eliminating the unrealistic geometries that could be obtained by a geometry parametrization. The CFD results confirm the main outcomes of the optimization process.


In this publication, you will:

  1. Discover the Inverse Design technics to design pump impellers with strict criteria and requirements (static, dynamic stresses...).
  2. See how this proposed approach can be used to rapidly and automatically explore a large part of the design space to create impeller and diffuser designs that meet contrasting requirements relating to efficiency, suction performance, manufacturing limitations, mechanical constraints or cost.
  3. Understand why such an approach leads to a substantial reduction of the computational cost.
