In the authors' perspective, a higher load-carrying capacity is necessary for the sealing of lubricant and to reduce their wear, and its value significantly depends on the pattern grooves and lubricant pumped in the contact interface. However, many studies contend that increase in load-carrying capacity of a spiral groove increases the leakage and also pumping of lubricants in the contact region shall result in elevated leakage. Therefore, the objective of this work [1] was to find a method to deal with these conflicting objectives.

Nonetheless, authors wish to emphasis that this work presents the multi-objective optimization of a gas mechanical seals with spiral grooves for the first time, and its full implementation requires further improvements. In the future studies, this approach will be modified by integrating different algorithms, utilizing different conditions according to the specific requirements. For instance, factors such as cavitation (for...
