Design Optimization of Dynamically Coupled Actuated Butterfly Valves Subject to a Sudden Contraction

In this effort, we present novel nonlinear modeling of two solenoid actuated butterfly valves subject to a sudden contraction and then develop an optimal configuration in the presence of highly coupled nonlinear dynamics. The valves are used in the so-called smart systems employed in a wide range of...
