There is first a survey of the underlying theory: fluid statics and dynamics, Bernouilli's equation, flow in pipes, dimensional analysis, and properties of fluids - transmission fluids in particular. These principles are applied to positive displacement pumps and motor units, valve controlled systems and simple hydraulic servo appliances. A review of surge pressures, hydraulic lock and the effects of entrained air is also presented. The book will strongly appeal to Higher National Certificate, Diploma and Degree students, and thanks to the author's many industrial contacts it is practical enough to be of great use to designers.
