Abstract:

This report covers the design and development of a second-generation hydrofluidic servovalve. The objective of the program was to demonstrate the performance of a servoactuator using a hydrofluidic amplifier cascade input stage that replaces the bellows-driven flapper-nozzle valve of a conventional servovalve, a fluidic feedback transducer, and an actuator. The servovalve was designed to interface with a GFE actuator, which was used in the performance of Contract DAAJ02-73-C-0046, and uses U.S. Army aircraft hydraulic fluid meeting specifications of MIL-H-5606.
