Featuring easy-to-understand explanations of theory and underlying mathematics principles, this book provides readers with a complete introduction to fluid power, including hydraulics and pneumatics. The differences and similarities between hydraulics and pneumatics are identified, allowing readers to leverage their knowledge en route to new skills. Detailed color illustrations, photographs, and color-enhanced schematics are used effectively to add clarity to discussion of the construction and function of components. A dedicated section on component specifications is featured in each chapter, while realistic numbers are used and problems are stated in such a way as to develop practical system design skills. Knowledge of college-level algebra is assumed, but no trigonometry or calculus is required, making this book ideal for the technologist. Nomenclature, metric prefixes and conversion factors, equations, and graphic symbols are located in handy appendices for use by readers as they progress through the book. An introduction to the industry, plus a comprehensive glossary, is also included for the benefit of those who are just beginning their study of fluid power.
