Development of Accelerated Life Test Method of Hydraulic Pump


Article Preview

This paper proposes a new accelerated life test method of hydraulic pump used in vehicles, which have multiple alternating loads. For determination of life time of hydraulic pump for given field conditions with respect to duty cycle, the equivalent load and speed of this unit has to be determined. Equivalent load and speed can be calculated from the given duty cycle using the predominant theory for cumulative fatigue damage. Finally, we can perform accelerated life test on hydraulic pump by determination of test pressure and speed from calculated equivalent cumulative damage per working cycle and weighted average speed.
