What’s New in Learning Advantage? – Hydraulics of a Pressure Transducer

9-26-2018 12-50-08 PM.pngThere are fundamental questions in the universe that young, bright engineers are learning to answer all the time. How can pressure be reduced or amplified in hydraulic systems? What’s the relationship between force and pressure? Does pineapple belong on a pizza?

In our newest tutorial on Learning Advantage, Hydraulics of a Pressure Transducer, we attempt to address at least two of those questions with a short-yet-powerful tutorial designed to teach users to:

  • Explain how a piston rod connecting two pistons of different diameters can be used to reduce or amplify the pressure in a hydraulic system

  • Define the equations describing the behavior of the hydraulic transducer

  • Use Simcenter Amesim Student Edition to validate the results


Learning Advantage is an online learning portal covering all of Siemens Industry Software products. Our Corporate customers pay an annual subscription fee for this resource, which is always FREE to our Academic partners! Ask your instructor or administrator about using Learning Advantage today!

Incidentally, the obvious answer to the third question is that the perfect pizza is St. Louis style and comes loaded with jalapenos, anchovies, and, of course, PINEAPPLE! Change my mind in the comments below!
