The valves used to control or shut off the flow through a pipeline can be divided into many different types, including gate valves, globe valves, and check valves. Globe valves, in particular, have excellent properties, and because they can easily control the flow under high-pressure conditions, they are generally used in LNG ship and steam pipelines. In this paper, a method for changing the shape of a seat was suggested to solve the valve leakage problem from a structural perspective. In addition, the stress distribution and directional deformation were compared for each model. The suggested models were thus validated, and the optimized seat structure, which includes a self-supporting capability for decreasing the amount of leakage, was determined.
