Hydraulics On a Roller Coaster
My friend and I are doing a project on Roller coaster and wanted to ask a few questions.
1. How do you maintain the hydraulics system on a Roller coaster?
2. How d Hydraulic system operate on a Roller Coaster?
3.What Safety are required to operate these Roller Coasters?
Thank you for anyone who helps ^-^
A fallacy perpetrated in the movies is that oil-based hydraulics force the brakes closed and when that fails the train moves thru the course freely. Just the opposite is the case... at least, as far as I know. If there are any cases of a roller coaster which actually uses oil instead of air, or use a control system that forces the brakes closed rather than open, then someone please correct me here.
I think an online search will probably be your best source for info, now that you have a better picture of how the safety systems actually operate.
