Approach to the design of fluid power systems

C R Burrows, D G Tilley, K A Edge, P J Chapple

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


The design of fluid power systems frequently represents a significant challenge, even to the skilled and knowledgeable designer. This paper identifies the principal features of the design process and draws attention to the role of simulation. It is essential that the creativity of the designer is not stifled and consequently simulation must be acknowledged as an aid, not as part of an automated process. The paper includes a series of examples which illustrate how, through the use of simulation as part of an iterative process, systems may be designed to meet a specification
