Hydraulic Model and Simulation Analysis for Monorail Brake System


Article Preview

This paper mainly analyzes the hydraulic system principle during the monorail braking, and come to a conclusion that the spring stiffness and the throttle valve flow area are main factors affect the brake system. Then we use the MSC.EASY5 to modeling the hydraulic system, and simulate the unloading time of hydraulic cylinder under the spring force, the result shows that, the response time of a braking system can meet the requirement of the coal mine safety regulation, and change the flow area of throttle valve will affect the brake system.
