Design of Changeover Valves


Conceptual CAD Design and FEA Analysis Design Verification of a Family of Changeover Valves

During this project, JAR undertook the total responsibility for the conceptual design and analysis of a family of three, four, six and eight inch changeover valves. The scope of this work included the preparation of a preliminary assembly model as well as the iterative refinement of the design for each size based on structural calculations to establish critical dimensions for major valve components.

The deliverables for this effort included an assembly layout, preliminary component designs and a draft Design Report for each valve size. The solid models of the valves in this project were developed using Pro/ENGINEER and the finite element based stress analysis and design optimization were carried out using ANSYS.
