Hydraulic Cylinder

A Hydraulic cylinder (also called a linear hydraulic motor) is a mechanical actuator that is used to give a unidirectionalforce through a unidirectional stroke. It has many applications, notably in engineering vehicles.

    Formula

    Push =sin(angle)*PSI*3.1415*b2/4 lbs.
    pull =sin(angle)*PSI*3.1415*(b2-d2)/4 lbs.

    Hydraulic cylinders get their power from pressurized hydraulic fluid, which is typically oil. The hydraulic cylinder consists of a cylinder barrel, in which a piston connected to a piston rod moves back and forth.rod moves back and forth.

    Example:
    Calculate the Push and Pull of a Hydraulic Cylinder.
    Bore of a Cylinder (b) = 5
    Pound per Square Inch (PSI)=10
    Diameter of a Rod (d) =5
    Angle (degrees) = 30

     

    Solution:
    Push =sin(angle)*PSI*3.1415*b2/4 lbs.
    = 30*10*3.1415*5*2/4
    = 98.00
    pull =sin(angle)*PSI*3.1415*(b2-d2)/4 lbs.
    = 30*10*3.1415*(5*2-5*2)/4
    = 0.00
