Solution of a linear model of a single-piston pump by means of methods for differential equations in Hilbert spaces. (English) Zbl 0644.76081

A mathematical model of a fluid flow in a single-piston pump is formulated and solved. Variation of pressure and rate of flow in suction and delivery piping respectively is described by linearized Euler equations for barotropic fluid. A new phenomenon is introduced by a boundary condition with discontinuous coefficient describing function of a valve. The system of Euler equations is converted to a second order equation in the space \(L^ 2(0,l)\), where l is length of the pipe. The existence, unicity and stability of the solution of the Cauchy problem and the periodic solution is proved under explicit assumptions.
