The early evolution— Origin and applications
Based on the famous theory coined by well-known physicist Blaise Pascal, the Hydraulic technology has revolutionized the field of innovation. As per his theory, increase in pressure in a confined/suppressed fluid stir an equal increase at every point in the enclosed structure and the intensity of the released pressure is ten times the initial force.
The fundamental result achieved through the use of hydraulics was to magnify force and create great pressure with a little pressure. Present day hydraulic solutions are based upon this technique using compressible fluids like oil, water to produce the kind of needed force.
The evolution in the hydraulic system is apparent in its indispensable usage in our daily lives that we don’t realize it has been forcibly incorporated. Service trolleys, Land diggers, Car Parking systems, electro hydraulic actuator, all of these are the applications that deploy hydraulics technology. Furthermore, the very popular, “hopping cars” use hydraulic lift kits to jack up or lower the cars. Aircrafts also make use of hydraulics in landing gear and in the braking system. The technology can be broadly classified as:
