Fluid Power with Applications, seventh edition

Anthony Esposito

 

Now in its seventh edition, Fluid Power with Applications continues toprovide 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 provides the “how” as well as the “why” of fluid power systems.

 

New features of the seventh edition include:

  • Coverage of the salient features and capabilities of Automation Studio™, a computer software package that allows the user to design, simulate, animate, and mathematically analyze fluid power circuits (Chapter 18)
  • An Automation Studio™ CD (produced by Famic Technologies Inc.) that contains simulations and animations of many of the fluid power circuits presented throughout the book as well as a variety of additional fluid power applications.
  • Coverage of using water hydraulics in lieu of oil hydraulics in certain promising fluid power applications, reflecting the fact that water is a more environmentally-friendly hydraulic fluid than oil (Section 12.17)
  • Material on fluid power systems that enhance the use of renewable energy, reflecting the increasing emphasis on lowering air-pollution levels and reducing greenhouse gases to minimize global warming
  • Coverage of the use of hydroforming and waterjet cutting, two promising manufacturing applications of hydraulics (Sections 3.5 and 5.2)
  • A number of updated photographs and illustrations that better reflect current fluid power technology
  • Many updated example problems and end-of-chapter exercises that reflect current industrial applications
