Abstract:

This report covers the analysis, detail design, fabrication, and evaluation of a poppet-type servovalve to be used in servoactuators for hydrofluidic stability augmentation systems. Initial analysis and design included review of poppet valve principles, various design configurations and preliminary tests of poppet valve operation and flow forces. Evaluation included static, dynamic, and limited environmental tests. Although servovalve performance requirements were not met, it was shown that poppet valving can be mechanized to operate as a servovalve in driving an actuator piston.
