Interactive Nomogram for Hydraulic Hose Sizing

Adequate sizing of hydraulic hoses is an essential step of any project. I am old-fashioned - I prefer good old nomograms and a ruler to calculators and specialized software - a harmless tribute to tradition, if you will, like using an analogue pressure gauge over a digital one - simple and instantaneous.

In order to give this traditional method of sizing hydraulic hoses and pipes an internet-age twist, I came up with the following interactive page, which, hopefully, will find a place among your "engineering" bookmarks. You will need javascript enabled browser to view the nomogram correctly. Instructions - grab the yellow dots to move the interactive line, enjoy.
