For Kalim:

Quote:
Another good example of the failure of intuitive engineering, a solenoid actuated device will have some major problems besides the fact that they consume too much energy and act too slowly. Valve springs and mechanisms are prone to vibration if the motion is not designed with very carefull definition of acceration and jerk, a solenoid is not capable of that, a servo is but is about 1,000 time too slow. Then you would have the problem of the valve closing on the seat without regulated velocity, good luck with that, it will pound the seat to death at high speed.

Joe, you really need to move beyond your gut intuitive thinking and do some actual engineering with real dimensions, mass and motion. That is simply the only effective way to make progress in modern times.
