In order to find out the influence of different section-thickness of the manipulator for GIS detection on the mass, strength and stiffness, the performance of the arm rod with different section thickness is analysed by MATLAB under the condition of a certain section height. Firstly, the influence of the parameters of each section-thickness on the mass, strength and stiffness is analysed by single variable analysis. Then the mathematical model is established, and the section-thickness of the arm is optimized using the method of nonlinear programming. The results are similar to the results of single variable analysis. Finally, the section thickness of the virtual prototype is optimized by the finite element analysis method. The correctness of MATLAB optimization results is verified. The optimal solution of the section-thickness of the GIS-detection-arm is obtained.
