A well designed tank FEM model can simulate the tank

mechanical property with high computation precision. In this

paper, the 3D-springs model is used to simulate the

deformation of the bolts connecting upper tank and lower tank.

Experiments are carried out to measure the deformation of

tanks under both positive and negative air pressure. The

comparison of experimental results and simulation results

indicates that the introduction of this technique significantly

improved the computation precision.

QPSO algorithm, originally introduced by Jun Sun [7] in

2004, is an efficiency global optimization algorithm proved by

hundreds of papers. Aiming at the minimization of the total

mass of tank ribs, a tank design optimization method in

conjunction with QPSO is proposed in section III.
