Fluid Power: Hydraulics and Pneumatics is a teaching package aimed at students pursuing a technician-level career path. It teaches the fundamentals of fluid power and provides details on the design and operation of hydraulic and pneumatic components, circuits, and systems. Extensive coverage is provided for both hydraulic and pneumatic systems. This book does not contain engineering calculations that will confuse students. Instead it applies math skills to the formulas needed by the technician-level student.
Full-color illustrations throughout the text.
Each chapter includes detailed Internet resources related to the chapter topics to allow further exploration.
Laboratory manual contains activities correlated to the chapter topic, and chapter quizzes to measure student knowledge.
The Instructor's Resource CD includes answers to the chapter tests and chapter quizzes, as well as responeses to select Lab Manual Activity Analysis questions.
