Energy Consumption and Dynamic Behaviour Analyses in Single-Rod Hydraulic Actuation of Mobile MachinesMazloumpour, Mohammad E 08 January 2014 (has links)
This thesis investigates the performance of single-rod hydraulic actuation of mobile machines. The performance is evaluated by studying the energy consumption and the dynamic performance of such actuation systems. Presently, valve-controlled systems control actuators of mobile machines. However, they are inefficient in terms of energy consumption. Therefore, low-energy consumption pump-controlled systems have been proposed. This thesis studies the energy consumption of pump-controlled systems developed by Wendell and Rahmfeld-Ivantysynova and valve-controlled systems. This thesis also compares the dynamic performance of the above pump-controlled systems with the load sensing valve-controlled system. A set of evaluation tests is conducted on single-rod hydraulic actuations that are simulated using the Automation Studio® software. Based on a cycle test, the energy consumption of Wendell’s pump-controlled system is 60% lower than that of the load sensing system. However, the above pump-controlled system leads to the poor dynamic behavior of a single-rod cylinder.

Florida Technological University College of Engineering Thesis / A mathematical model is derived to provide quasi-steady state predictions of the performance of a high pressure hydraulic supply system, using equations which govern the physical processes as opposed to equations which match input-output characteristics. Model equations are developed to describe the operation of the power source, control valves, energy source, gas side of the system, hydraulic accumulator, the motorpump, and hydraulic side of the system. The accuracy of the model is then checked by inserting known parameters from a previously developed control system and comparing model predictions with performance data from this system. / M.S. / Masters / Engineering / Engineering / 40 p. / vii, 40 l. : ill. ; 28 cm.

Florida Technological University College of Engineering Thesis / Servovalves are a key factor in determining the performance characteristics of an electrohydraulic position servo. This paper examines the interrelationships between servovalve parameters and system requirements. A brief description of the configuration and operation of a typical servovalve is presented. Key servovalve parameters are identified, defined, and discussed. System performance considerations are identified, and the interrelationships between system requirements and servovalve parameters are examined. Examples of servovalve parameters for missile, aircraft and industrial systems are given to illustrate the effect of system requirements on a servovalve. Finally, general guide-lines for selecting and specifying servovalve parameters are given. / M.S. / Masters; / College of Engineering / Engineering / Engineering / 60 p. / vi, 58 l. : ill., diagrs., graphs ; 28 cm.
Simulation of growth of multiple interacting 3D cracks in hydraulic fractures driven by inviscid fluidDana, Saumik P. 17 February 2015 (has links)
In this report, we develop a computational procedure to investigate propagation of 3D cracks in isotropic linearly elastic media in a 2D framework. We reduce the 3D weakly singular, weak-form traction integral equation to its 2D analog by introducing a constraint on crack profile in out-of-plane direction. Symmetric Galerkin boundary element method based on the obtained 2D weak-form traction integral equation is adopted to model these fractures. In particular, we consider multiple interacting cracks in unbounded domain subject to internal pressure to model hydraulic fracture. / text
