Abstract

The design of fluid power components and systems based solely upon the use of steady-state analysis may lead to failure and possible safety hazards even in applications where the dynamic requirements are apparently insignificant. For example, the wall thickness of a telescopic actuator, selected on the basis of estimated steady-state pressure values, may prove inadequate under transient conditions where a load is suddenly brought to rest by the action of a hose-break valve. The use of factors of safety, more aptly referred to as factors of ignorance, frequently provides a way forward, but the degree of uncertainty can be reduced if computer simulation is used to predict the actual values of pressure transients
