Abstract : Summarized in this report are the design and fabrication techniques together with an evaluation of proportional fluid amplifiers, gain blocks, and circuits. Also presented are data obtained during staging studies that resulted in the development of a five-stage, high-gain amplifier with output stability and noise level adequate for experiments with feedback. The application of this gain block design is described in developing a scale changer and integrator. Based on this study, the design and fabrication techniques described are considered feasible in developing functional, analog flueric computational circuits. The multistage gain block, using the basic HDL pressure gain design (or a relatively minor modification thereof) is also considered capable of pressure gains greater than 10,000. (Author)
