Science and expert articles
Internal leakage occurs in a lot of hydraulic components; pumps, hydromotors, spool sliding valves. Inside of them a gap exists between the two elements with relative velocities.
Characterization of the surface topography of materials is important in applications involving friction, lubrication, and wear. The essential feature is the hardness of materials.
The viscosity of a hydraulic fluid is one of its most important material properties. The choice of the appropriate viscosity of the fluid for a particular application is one of the most important tasks of a hydraulic engineer.
