Poppet Lift Cone Ball poppet lift with conical seat
This is a template model for a poppet lift with conical seat.

Flow Area


When the poppet is far from the seat, the flowarea between the two chambers is limited by the area between the seatside rod and the seat.
As the poppet moves nearer, the flow area is limited by the seat and the poppet. The flow area is the area of a truncated cone with base radius , top radius , and slant height ,
with constant. See the following figure.


Chamber Volumes


The chamber volumes (poppet side) and (seat side) are calculated using the following quantities: The initial volume (when the poppet lift is closed) on both poppet side () and seat side () are known.
The seat side volume is
where is the distance the poppet has been lifted from its initial position.
is calculated from the relationship .


Implementation


This model calculates the volumes on both sides of the poppet lift, the mass flow between the two sides and the force . Pressure is calculated in volume components connected to connector and .
