An extract from An Investigation Into the Required Equipment and Procedures for the Accurate Measurement of Pressure in Hydraulic Fluid Power Systems, The Fluid Power Institute (Milwaukee School of Engineering), AD-A244 165 (U.S.AR. M&E-R&R), May 1976, 139 pgs. " 1.2.1.3.1 Snubber Equation Derivation Using the laboratory data obtained in Section 1.2.1.1, characteristic equations for various degrees of snubbing (i.e., 20°, 25°, and 10°), were obtained. The P-Q characteristic, in general, for the orifice can be shown to be the following: … The above equation closely resembles the equation of a straight line: … A simple least-squares curvefit can now be employed to determine n and log₁₀ K. Actual calculations for these values were performed using HP-55 programmable calculator and the program given below … page 22 1.2.1.3.2 Hydlraulic Gauge Capacitance Equation It can be shown that the pressure-volume relationship for the bourdon tube pressure gauge is: … The hydraulic capacitance is defined as the rate of change of volume with respect to pressure. That is, … Applying the derivative to the original equation gives … Rearrangement of the above equation results in: … which resembles the equation of a straight line … The calculations necessary to obtain the least-square's fit were again performed on a programable HP-55 calculator using the program below … page 22 " BEST!
