A Unified Approach for Design and Analysis of Engineered Systems Using HyPneu 932488
The design and analysis of most engineered systems involves many and sometimes diverse technical disciplines. For example, in the design of a fluid power system, the input to the system is usually some type of prime mover. In addition, the output may include gears, linkage, etc. The output may be used in a feedback circuit which will normally encompass instrumentation, logic elements, and controllers. In order to evaluate the total performance of such systems analytically, a software package must be available which can unify the interactions of these diverse components.
This paper will present a new computer program which will unify hydraulic, pneumatic, electronic, and mechanical components permitting the analysis of complete engineered systems on a P.C. Several example systems will be shown which originate in actual machinery designs. These example systems will be simulated and output type information will be presented.
