The goal of this research is the shape design of the valve using a computer simulation. For an analysis a basic mathematical model describing compression cycle is considered as consisting of five sets of coupled equations. These are the volume equation (kinematics), valve dynamic equation (dynamics), ideal gas equation (thermodynamics), Bernoulli equation (fluid dynamics), and dynamic equation of fluid particle based on Helmholtz equation (acoustics). Valve motion is made by the superposition of free vibration modes obtained by the finite element method. That is, the eigenvalues and eigenvectors are the sufficient modeling factors fur the valve in the simulation program. Thus, to design a shape of the valve, shape design sensitivity through chain-ruled derivatives is considered from two sensitivity coefficients, one is the design sensitivity of the capability of compressor with respect to the eigenvalues of the valve, and the other is the design sensitivity of the eigenvalue with respect to the shape change of the valve. In this research, the continuum design sensitivity analysis concepts are used for the latter.
