Abstract

A swing-type hydraulic check valve was found to vibrate continuously when a damper was applied to prevent slamming. A research program was conducted to develop an understanding of the phenomenon and thereby determine a method of alleviation. This paper describes the flow phenomena observed during flow visualization studies of a two dimensional full scale model of the valve. Such observations give insight into the mechanism of vibration.
