  3. 3. On Fluid Power Piston Pumps : With Special Reference to Flow Ripple Reduction

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Maria Pettersson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1993]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Among the major disadvantages of fluid power systems, leakage and an unpleasant sound level can be mentioned. Both drawbacks increase with increasing pressure ripple. Functional problems may be caused, even fatigue and breakdown. A main source of noise is hydrostatic pumps. READ MORE
