Basic Hydraulic Principles

Hydraulic Brakes

A good example of a typical simple hydraulic system is a braking system.

In a hydraulic braking system, the slave pistons have a larger area than the master cylinder. Force applied to the master cylinder is multiplied as the fluid exerts the resultant pressure on a greater surface area.

 

Hydraulic Brakes

To demonstrate the operation of a simple hydraulic braking system, Sphaera's interactive classroom training aid is simple yet effective. Buttons on screen provide the instructor with full control over the amount of force applied whilst pressure and force are clearly indicated through use of colour.

The system is part of our instructor pack for basic hydraulic principles, available for use in schools and colleges and includes interactive material to provide tutorials on all of the following:

A demonstration of Pascal's Law...
The relationship between hydraulic pressure and force...
How a simple hydraulic system works...
An example of a simple interactive hydraulic braking system...
How a hydraulic swash plate pump works...

Operation of a hydraulic NRV (non-return valve)...
