Abstract

A method of analysis which permits the investigation of stresses and deflections in a hydraulic cylinder, using a finite element analytical model, is presented. The hydraulic cylinder is modeled as an assemblage of space frame elements with a fictitious rotary spring at the gland to consider the effect of seals and bearings at the rod-cylinder interface.
