# Using Mathematics to Maximize Hydraulic System Efficiency

When designing hydraulic systems, the process is complex and the results must be precise. Hydraulic systems are complex, which is why mathematics and computer programs are necessary to design them.

With mathematical equations, you can predict machine behavior and performance under a specified set of conditions. This is important if you are building a custom hydraulic system, or one that will be operating in a specific – or varying – set of external conditions.

Formulas can be used to calculate cylinder speed and force at various levels of flows, pressures and areas. The great thing about these models and programs advancing is that eventually prototyping will be unnecessary. That means minimizing costs, because you won’t be building physical prototypes.

It seems impossible, but mathematics and computer programming is becoming precise that an engineer will be able to design, test and debug a hydraulic system before a single cent is spent on hardware to build a prototype. Imagine the joy of eliminating prototype costs from your budget, knowing that you will still be getting a quality hydraulic system as a result. It’s definitely a concept that we’re sure you could get used to.

Like many other aspects of our lives, advancing technology can have a significant impact. Aside from mathematics and formulas, if you’re unsure how to approach building hydraulic systems, there are other alternatives.
