Due to high working temperature and rotating speed, turbine disks are crucial parts in gas turbine engines. The weight of disks is always heavy in order to increase the reliability and structural integrity. So optimization design of disks could bring a significant reduction in engine weight. Focusing on a typical Low Pressure Turbine (LPT) disk, this paper improves its design in both static and dynamic characteristics with ANSYS Workbench platform. Based on a 2D parameterized model, the sensitivity of different structural parameters was investigated quickly. Then the optimization process to minimize the mass was conducted by NLPQL (Non-Linear Programming by Quadratic Lagrangian) method with 3D parameterized model. The equivalent stress of disk was limited in static optimization and resonance frequency was also restricted to a safe level through a Campbell diagram in dynamic optimization. A new design plan was acquired through optimization process, which reduces 13.6% of total weight under static and dynamic criteria.
