The document is a how-to-do-it guide to the design of control systems using analog fluidic devices. It includes reference information on definitions, symbols, and general principles an integrated set of static and dynamic design methods and a step-by-step design procedure illustrated with a practical sample problem. The primary purpose of the Design Manual is to provide the control engineer with a unified set of analytical tools for the straightforward design of systems employing fluidic devices. Its secondary purpose is to provide a universally acceptable vocabulary so that the control engineer, the fluidic device manufacturer, and the users project engineer can communicate in a common language. The Fluidic Systems Design Manual contains the following major sections 1 Introduction, 2 applicable standards, 3 test methods and instrumentation, 4 graphical characteristics of typical fluidic devices, 5 large signal performance analysis, 6 small signal performance analysis, 7 detailed system design procedure, 8 illustrative example of VSTOL control system design.
