Force calculation

  1. Jun 4, 2010 #1

    Right now I am designing a flap valve with is operating with the horizontal axis. By using lever-pneumatic cylinder mechanism, valve will open (vertical position) and close (horizontal position) with 90° operation. I this case, I need to calculate the required force at the pn. cylinder piston rod end. My load is around 5000N through out the rectangular flap 800x1092 sq. mm. How can i Handle this? Using UDL condition? Of ____
