Experimental results are presented to show the effects of temperature, flow, end-conditions, and branching on the small-signal sinusoidal amplitude frequency response of pneumatic lines. Distributed parameter transmission line theory for uniform lines is extended to include varying conditions of pressure and temperature along the line as well as series-connected lines of different diameters and parallel branching. The experimental results are compared with the formulated theory for several test configurations. Agreement between experiment and computer solutions based on the theory is relatively good.
