Abstract : A fluidic accelerometer and electromagnetic transducer formed from a plurality of vertical laminations having a nozzles, a pair of outlets for receiving nozzle fluid and a flexible member as an extension of one of the laminations which forms a vertical wall of said nozzle extending into a chamber between the nozzle and the outlets. The flexible member is responsive to acceleration or electromagnetic forces transverse the nozzle centerline to vary the proportion of nozzle fluid received by each outlet. The flexible member is separated from the horizontal walls of the chamber by a selected small distance to create sufficient viscous shear force to effectuate damping. (Author)
