A numerical scheme based on the k—e turbulences model has been employed to determine turbulent flow characteristics of servo-valve orifices. Numerical predictions of flow patterns, flow coefficients and pressure variations within the valve orifice are presented and their implications for control of spool forces and cavitation effects are considered. The limitations of the model are considered and a proposal for more effective servo-valve modelling, together with a comparable experimental study, is made.
