Fluid Power Circuits and Controls : Fundamentals and Applications, Second Edition Hardback
by John S. (Virginia Tech University, Blacksburg, USA) Cundiff, Michael F. (University of Nebraska, Lincoln, USA) Kocher
Part of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Series series
Fluid Power Circuits and Controls: Fundamentals and Applications, Second Edition, is designed for a first course in fluid power for undergraduate engineering students.
After an introduction to the design and function of components, students apply what they've learned and consider how the component operating characteristics interact with the rest of the circuit.
The Second Edition offers many new worked examples and additional exercises and problems in each chapter.
Half of these new problems involve the basic analysis of specific elements, and the rest are design-oriented, emphasizing the analysis of system performance.
The envisioned course does not require a controls course as a prerequisite; however, it does lay a foundation for understanding the extraordinary productivity and accuracy that can be achieved when control engineers and fluid power engineers work as a team on a fluid power design problem.
A complete solutions manual is available for qualified adopting instructors.
