Abstract:

In the proposed gyroscopic hydraulic arrangement an increase in measurement accuracy is attained thanks to the use of a cylinder, provided with radial channels, through which the liquid is forced by two counter streams. The operation of the device is based on the effect of Coroilis forces of inertia on the walls of the tubes, situated along the radii of the cylinder, when the liquid flows through the tubes.
