This report presents the results of an analytical and experimental investigation of a pressure-controlled proportional amplifier which operates with a supply jet in the laminar flow regime. A mathematical model is developed which may be used for the prediction of the supply characteristics, input characteristics for three types of input signals, transfer characteristics, and output characteristics of the amplifier. Acceptable agreement is found to exist between theory and experimental data although theory predicts a slightly greater aspect ratio dependency than the data indicate.
