Howard Community College Engineering Project: Hydraulic Ram


This is a hydraulic ram that we built as part of the Fundamentals of Engineering Design at Howard Community College. IT IS NOT WORKING YET, AAAaaAArGGHHH!!! It is about 60% functional, but the part of the system that makes the pumping action automatic is not working yet. We have watched several videos and read tutorials on other peoples’ working rams, and they used a simple 1″ brass swing check valve as the waste valve. Ours does not flap, it just stays open. When the valve is manually operated, it elevates water as it is supposed to. Any suggestions to improve functionality would be greatly appreciated!
