Analysis & Interpretation

Engineering-Support for analysis and optimization

One of the goals of simulation is to optimize the oscillation behavior of new and existing products both from a mechanical point of view (load, wear, service life) and from an energy efficiency point of view (damping, efficiency). There is a wide range of approaches and analysis methods for this purpose - but which are the most appropriate in each case? FLUIDON engineers are familiar with the various analysis methods and their areas of application, analyze the simulation results together with you and develop ways to further optimize products. On the one hand, this helps you to deepen your understanding of the system, the influencing variables and effective mechanisms and, on the other hand, to technically secure investments, e.g. in modernization or conversion measures.

Examples of application areas of our development services

  • Efficiency analyses taking into account arbitrary, non-linear losses
  • Analysis of controller concepts and parameters in their interaction with mechanical and hydraulic components
  • Validation of the functions of hydraulic lift bridge actuators
  • Analysis and optimization of special valves
  • Oscillation-technical investigation of line systems

Qualitative and quantitative interpretation of simulation results

Thanks to modern simulation programs, complete systems can be quickly modeled and calculated. Engineers are then faced with the task of evaluating the validity and usefulness of the simulation results (e.g. force and motion quantities, pressure and mass flows), understanding and interpreting occurring effects and phenomena from a physical and mathematical point of view, and drawing the correct conclusions. Based on our many years of project experience, we know the generally applicable principles and methods for controlling and evaluating simulation results. Within the scope of engineering service projects we pass on this knowledge.
