A Method of Analysing the Logic Design of Pneumatic Sequential Circuits
In the absence of systematic analysis, a proposed ‘logic’ design of pneumatic sequential circuits may be tested by using a model, or some form of simulation process. These often incur unnecessary expense of time, effort and equipment. A simple time-chart method of analysis is described in this paper. It is based on the principle of ‘reduction-to-absurdity’ and is to be distinguished from a simulator.
