Abstract: The design and development of this hydraulic rescue cylinder are one of two parts that can attach with hydraulic rescue jaw to form a rescue tool which can easily cut and spreading metals. This study will improvise most of the existing hydraulic rescue cylinder that is heavy and difficult to use by developing a new hydraulic cylinder using mild steel with design calculations. In developing this hydraulic cylinder, the area of the cylinder barrel must be first considered. The concept idea of this project was based on a hydraulic double-acting operation that can extend and retract a piston rod. Selected material of this project was mild steel, and a study about its mechanical properties have been done. The hydraulic rescue cylinder also has been testing its operation in extending and retracting piston rod. The simulation analysis of this product also has been done by using Abaqus CAE for static analysis and Solidworks 2016 software for motion study and analysis of the product. Result achieved from this analysis are that is best in term of value of deformation, maximum elasticity and factor of safety of this project. Thus, the recorded result can use for further study and future recommendation.
