## Hydraulic Cylinder Design Calculation with Example

We have already discussed how to design hydraulic cylinder piston.

In this sizing calculation tutorial we will see how to design hydraulic cylinder. Industrial hydraulic cylinder is an example of a typical thick cylinder.

Thick cylinder vs. thin Read the rest

## How to Calculate Piston Size Required for Designing a Hydraulic Cylinder

What is hydraulic cylinder?

The hydraulic cylinder is a device that converts the energy of fluid into mechanical energy. The fluid is pumped into the cylinder by means of a pump and it can be used to move a load. Read the rest

## Flywheel Design Calculation – Simplified

What is a flywheel?

A flywheel used in machines acts as a reservoir to store energy when the supply of energy is excess and the same is released when the requirement arises i.e. its primary function is to sort out Read the rest

## Kinetic Energy Recovery System – How it Works

While driving a vehicle, the speed of the vehicle is not always constant. We will have to apply brakes as and when required. While applying brakes the kinetic energy of the vehicle is reduced.

As we all know that Read the rest

## How Does Wind Turbine Work

Wind energy is a renewable energy source obtained from nature and is converted to either electrical energy or mechanical energy depending on the need and is one of the fastest growing renewable energy resources.
