Mechanical 4 - Pressure Transient Testing

Hydraulic Pressure Transient Testing

Student Team: David Zietz, Sarah Talbot, Danielle Mathews, Ian Shioyama, Duncan Howard
Advisor: Mike Keegan
Sponsoring Organization: The Boeing Company
Liaison: Tom Wilson, Jim Alvarado

Hydraulic systems in aircraft experience pressure transients which may be detrimental to hydraulic tubes and components. Hydraulic accumulators are put into the system to absorb these pressure transients. The Boeing Company sponsored this student project to design and build a test stand to simulate pressure transients seen on Boeing aircraft in order to test the effectiveness of a potential accumulator to be added to the plane. Students worked to procure the proper components and design the test stand in order to fit the required specifications, tested the accumulator and analyzed the data obtained from the testing procedure.
