The purpose of the Oklahoma State UniversityU.S. Army Mobility Equipment Research and Development Command Program is to provide the military with tools for the scientific appraisal of fluid power systems. Section I presents a detailed account of the project activities concerning hydraulic pump specifications. Included are an OSU proposed revision of Army pump specification MIL-P-52675 and two proposed test procedures for which no industrially recognized standards exist at present. Also included is a discussion and justification of the proposed specification and test procedures. Section II presents the details of the project activities concerning hydraulic valve specifications. Tests have been conducted based on Army specification MIL-V-52688 and the test results are discussed. OSU proposed revision of MIL-V-52688 is presented including additional test procedures that are considered necessary for Army valve specification. The project activities concerning hydraulic cylinder specifications are detailed in Section III. Included are an OSU proposed revision of Army cylinder specification MIL-L-52762. Also included is a summary of an industrial survey conducted on hydraulic cylinders and discussion and justification of the proposed specification and test procedures. Author
