About the Author:

Anthony Esposito was born on October 4, 1934 in Schenectady, NY.  His family moved to Saratoga Springs, NY in 1948.  He graduated from Saratoga Springs High School in 1953.  In 1957 he received a Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Union College in Schenectady.  He was employed at General Electric Company as a design engineer in Cincinnati from 1957 to 1961 and a control systems engineer in Schenectady from 1961 to 1965. He married Mary Jane Stark of Cincinnati in 1959 and they have four children and ten grandchildren. Anthony and Mary currently live in Fairfield, OH.

 

Upon receiving a Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Union College in 1965, Anthony left General Electric to begin a teaching career at Miami University within the Manufacturing Engineering Department. In 1969 he received his Professional Engineer’s License from the State of Ohio.  He served as Chairman of the Manufacturing Engineering Department from 1976 to 1992.  During his career at Miami University, he authored four engineering technology college textbooks, including “FLUID POWER WITH APPLICATIONS’ published by Prentice Hall.  His current title at Miami University is Professor Emeritus.

From the Back Cover:

Now in its sixth edition, Fluid Power with Applications continues to provide readers with an in-depth background in the field of fluid power. Emphasizing such subjects as design, analysis, operation, maintenance, and practical applications, this text not only provides the "why," but also the "how" of fluid power systems operations.

Features of the sixth edition include:

  • All material on ancillary hydraulic devices has been combined into a new Chapter 11, resulting in more coherent and focused chapters on these and other major components.
  • Example problems and end-of-chapter exercises have been updated to better reflect current industrial applications.
  • A new section 8.6 includes coverage on proportional control valves.
  • Derivations of key equations have been removed from various chapters and combined into a new Appendix I, allowing readers to better concentrate on applications without undue emphasis on mathematical analysis.
  • Updated photos and illustrations reflect current fluid power technology.
