Mini-book on Fluid Power System Dynamics

by William Durfee and Zongxuan Sun

Excerpt from the book's Foreword:

"This mini-book was created because system dynamics courses in the standard mechanical engineering curriculum do not cover fluid power, even though fluid power is essential to mechanical engineering and students entering the work force are likely to encounter fluid power systems in their job. Most system dynamics textbooks have a chapter or part of a chapter on fluid power but typically the chapter is thin and does not cover practical fluid power as is used in industry today. For example, many textbooks confine their discussion of fluid power to liquid tank systems and never even mention hydraulic cylinders, the workhorse of today's practical fluid power"
