Abstract:

The report covers the design and development of a hydrofluidic servoactuator. The objective of the program was to demonstrate the feasibility of a servoactuator utilizing a hydrofluidic amplifier cascade input stage which replaces the bellows-flapper-nozzle of a conventional servovalve, a spring- centered spool valve, a fluid feedback transducer, and an actuator. The servoactuator was designed to utilize U.S. Army aircraft hydraulic fluid, meeting specifications of MIL-H-5606, and to meet the performance of a UH-1 helicopter.
