In this study, an optimization analysis of the hydraulic gear pump cover with design of experiments and response surface method has been conducted. The sample of the solid cover of a hydraulic pump has been parametrically modelled. Structural strength analysis of the modelled hydraulic pump cover has been realized using finite element method. To prevent the concentration of stress on the hydraulic pump cover and to keep the stress values on the safe side, design inputs were not exceeded. According to the analysis results of this optimization study; The wall thickness of the hydraulic pump cover has been reduced. Finally, experimental tests were performed on hydraulic pump test setup, for verification of the simulation results.
