Figure 1. Configuration of the hydraulic chamber.

The hydraulic chamber, shown in fig. 1, is a common hydraulic component and is associated with hydraulic device model, HydModl. The chamber, of volume V and cross-sectional area A, is filled with a hydraulic fluid of bulk modulus B under pressure p. Often, due to the presence of a piston, the length of the chamber can vary. The change in length of the chamber is denoted d. Finally, hydraulic fluid can flow into the chamber; Q denotes the net volumetric flow rate into the chamber.

The description and formulation of the hydraulic chamber and elements provides the relationships among these variables.


  1. It is possible to attach comments to the definition of the object; these comments have no effect on its definition.


Sensors can be defined to extract information about hydraulic chambers. The following SensorType specifications are allowed for hydraulic chambers: CHAMBER_DATA. (Default value: CHAMBER_DATA).

No u value and v value are accepted for the hydraulic device.
