Understanding Buckling Strength of Hydraulic Cylinders (.PDF Download)

In a hydraulic cylinder, the pressure imparted by hydraulic fluid against a piston is converted to a force, which then performs the useful work. Because this force is transmitted by the piston rod, it must be dimensioned so that the stress of the rod (force/cross-sectional area) is low enough to minimize any risk of failure...
