Design Optimization of Jet Fuel Pump for Aviation

Jet fuel pumps play a critical role in the safe and efficient operation of commercial aviation. The performance and reliability of these pumps directly impact aircraft operation, fuel consumption, and overall flight safety. As demands for efficiency, reliability, and environmental sustainability continue to increase in the aviation industry, the optimization of jet fuel pump designs becomes paramount.

This report presents a comprehensive study on the optimization of jet fuel pump design utilizing advanced turbomachinery design software, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation tools, and optimization algorithms. CFturbo’s integration with SimericsMP and the Sandia National Laboratories’ DAKOTA optimizer offers a robust and adaptable framework for meeting the performance requirements and enhancing the efficiency of jet fuel pumps.

CFturbo provides a powerful platform for the rapid and automated design of turbomachinery components, allowing for the generation of geometric models tailored to specific performance requirements and constraints. SimericsMP, a state-of-the-art CFD software package, enables detailed analysis and 3D simulation of fluid flow phenomena within the jet fuel pump, providing valuable insights into flow behavior, pressure distribution, and performance characteristics. Integrating DAKOTA, a comprehensive and open-source optimization toolkit, further enhances the design process by facilitating the exploration of design parameter space and the identification of optimal solutions. Through the iterative application of design exploration and optimization techniques, this study aims to improve the efficiency and reliability of jet fuel pumps while meeting stringent industry standards and operational performance requirements.
