How to calculate flow rate of water through a pipe?
If a water pipe is 15 mm diameter and the water pressure is 3 bar, assuming the pipe is open ended, is it possible to calculate the flow rate or water velocity in the pipe? Most of the calculations I ...
Calculating Minimum Pipe Pressure Requirement for an Irrigation System
I am setting up an irrigation system for my ranch and I have a hard time calculating the minimum pipe pressure requirements to reduce cost. I need to know the maximum pressure the pipe has to cope ...
Motor for a hydraulic pump in a hydraulic system
I am a complete beginner to hydraulic systems, and I've wanted to learn more about this area. I'm designing a hydraulic system that involves using hydraulics to push/pull objects using pistons. I have ...
Fluid mechanics - how to calculate flow distribution in piping network?
I am trying to build flexible, visual tool to calculate flow distribution through the piping network (mobile hydraulics). I have root node of the network which has defined flow and pressure inputs. ...
How many pistons are used in Excavator Engine and how they coupled with pumps?
As I am examining the components of a Caterpillar 323D hydraulic excavator, I would like to inquire about the specifics of its diesel engine. Can you provide information on the number of pistons and ...
Hydraulic Brakes - Why motorcycle brakes more powerful than bicycle brakes?
I was wondering why motorcycle brakes have so much more stopping power than bicycle hydraulic brakes (Than can be found on mountain bikes for example). The rotor has a bigger size which gives better ...
Would connecting a small hydraulic pump to a larger hydraulic motor result in force multiplication?
In a hydrostatic transmission system, hydraulic pumps drive hydraulic motors (basically a reverse pump). If you were use a smaller hydraulic pump as an input and a bigger hydraulic motor as the ...
