Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to pneumohydraulic engines of forward movement. The goal is reached by execution of an elastic envelope containing at least one cross-section, a perimeter length of which one differs from a perimeter length of a cross-section that coincides with a thread of the lateral reinforcement. Thus the elastic envelope is covered at least by one, oriented concerning to envelope axes, closed layer of an elastic material with expressed antifriction properties, for example of polyamide or capron. And even one thread of a longitudinal reinforcement is arranged above an external surface of the given layer with fomation of contradirectional, including closed, circular helixes with a demanded step. Thus the interval of arrangement of threads of the lateral reinforcement is nonconstant along the axis of a mechanical muscle.

Cette invention porte sur des moteurs pneumatiques-hydrauliques à mouvement avant. En l'occurrence, on réalise une enveloppe élastique présentant au moins une coupe transversale dont le périmètre diffère de celui de la coupe transversale qui coïncide avec un fil de renforcement latéral. L'enveloppe élastique est recouverte d'au moins une couche fermée d'un matériau élastique, orientée par rapport aux axes de l'enveloppe, ce matériau élastique présentant des propriétés antifriction (polyamide ou capron). Un fil de renforcement longitudinal est disposé au-dessus d'une surface externe de la couche précitée avec une formation d'hélices fermées de sens opposé selon les exigences. L'intervalle de disposition des fils de renforcement latéral est donc non constant le long de l'axe d'un muscle mécanique.
