Abstract. The analysis of nitrile rubber milking liners with triangular and circular cross section has been performed. Dependencies between surrounding surfaces and volume of pulsation chambers of the tested specimens and the effect of squeezing the teat have been determined. The obtained data have been related to the structure (the time-frequency components) of the pulsation curve describing the mode of the samples. The functional relationships between the spatial parameters of the teatcup and the frequency components of the identified pulsation curves have been studied. Pressure exercised by the milking liner on artificial teat has been measured with various parameters of the pulsation system.
