Minimizing of air consumption for the air cushion with multiple outlet nozzles
Languages of publication
The paper presents the results of research on minimizing the air consumption of the air cushions used to move the transport platform. This kind of transport becomes more popular in industry. It is applied especially to move heavy machinery and equipment in factories with hardened floors. The working medium is air. This system has many advantages but it is characterized by high air consumption. The paper takes the issues of searching solutions to minimizing the air consumption. To perform the computational analysis a mathematical model was defined. Simulations were performed by using Maple software.
