Ideal for use in industrial training seminars, this well-illustrated and exceptionally lucid guide to fluid power technology strikes just the right balance between theory and application, providing both conceptual and practical information needed by today's technicians and technologists to succeed in the field. Emphasizes the inherent simplicity of fluid power systems and their underlying principles of operation and develops each topic logically, with careful attention to fine details. First shows 'how' and 'why' fluid behaves in a particular manner; next, makes abstract concepts concrete by demonstrating how this behavior is evidenced in situations already familiar to readers, then; extends concepts to new conditions and applications. Offers an adaptable approach to mathematics, making readers at ease no matter what their skill level. Offers many useful learning tools, including safety sidebars, suggested activities (over 60% new to this edition) exercises and problems (30% new), and end-of-chapter questions (many new). Now adds a section on 'Using Computers' to its introductory chapter.See Gas laws Programmable controller, 390-395 Proportional control, 401404 Proximity sensor. ... 225-233 performance curves, 108, 226, 228 radial piston, 229, 230 rotation, 223, 224 schematic symbols, 223, 274 selection, 99. ... 347 Reducing valve, 249, 25 1 Regenerative circuit, 285, 287 Regulator, 361-362 Relative humidity, 316-318, 324-327 Relative roughness factor, 200-203 Relief valve.
