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.
