SimHydraulics

Defining Fluid Properties

SimHydraulics employs efficient methods for defining density, viscosity, and bulk modulus—the fluid properties that affect system behavior. SimHydraulics provides 18 commonly used hydraulic fluids, such as Skydrol LD-4, HyJet 4A, and Fluid MIL-F-83828. Properties for these fluids are automatically calculated when you input the temperature and amount of trapped air. You can define a fluid by entering its fluid properties.
