Abstract: Two systems using stored mechanical energy, rotational and translational (drop), were proposed for use in testing a high discharge, high-pressure-regulating valve. A computer-based dynamic analysis of those systems indicates the drop test system to be less costly, but near the practical limits of drop height and weight. The rotational system will exercise the valve for one-half of a pump cycle provided the pump begins at the start of a pump output cycle. The rotational system must be able to withstand very large forces. Neither system exercises the valve for enough time, but the rotational system appears to be capable of longer testing time.
