I am calculating the extension and retraction times of a Fokker 50 landing gear. I found some restrictors in the hydraulic scheme of the Fokker 50. I know the flow before and after the restrictor. Is it then possible to calculate a certain factor or relation between the hydraulic flow and the restriction? Or are there some formulas to calculate this? I hope that I can calculate the hydraulic flow after the restrictor if the flow before the restrictor varies! Who can help me solving this problem? According to me; the bigger the flow the more the restrictor pinches the flow.
Before restrictor After restrictor
