Genre: Technology & Engineering

A hydraulic system controls the transmission of energy. It transforms the mechanical energy of a prime motor into fluid energy. It controls the fluid configuration and transforms the fluid energy into mechanical work at specified locations. Hydraulic systems feature high power density, sensitive response and precision of control, especially when operating under computer control. Thus, they have been widely used as the energy transmission control systems in aircraft, ships, construction machinery, machine tools and others. Therefore, it is indispensable for a mechanical engineer to become versed with hydraulic control technology. The technology is mainly associated with fluid mechanics and control theories, but it is related to the wider field of engineering as well. This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the analysis and design of hydraulic control systems which will be invaluable for practising engineers, as well as undergraduate and graduate students specializing in mechanical engineering. Firstly, the fundamental concepts of hydraulic control systems are addressed, and illustrated by reference to applications in the field of aviation engineering. Secondly, the fluid mechanics necessary for the comprehension of hydraulic elements are provided. The technology of the hydraulic components composing hydraulic control systems is addressed, the key focus being on how to apply theoretical concepts into the design and analysis of hydraulic components and systems. Finally, there is a discussion on fundamental control technology and its application to hydraulic servo systems. This includes the formation of hydraulic servo systems, basic control theorems, methods identifying the dynamic characteristics of hydraulic actuator systems, and a design method for hydraulic control systems. Numerical exercises are provided at the end of each chapter. Request Inspection Copy

Release Date: 2016-11-25
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The safe and reliable performance of many systems with which we interact daily has been achieved through the analysis and management of risk. From complex infrastructures to consumer durables, from engineering systems and technologies used in transportation, health, energy, chemical, oil, gas, aerospace, maritime, defence and other sectors, the management of risk during design, manufacture, operation and decommissioning is vital. Methods and models to support risk-informed decision-making are well established but are continually challenged by technology innovations, increasing interdependencies, and changes in societal expectations. Risk, Reliability and Safety contains papers describing innovations in theory and practice contributed to the scientific programme of the European Safety and Reliability conference (ESREL 2016), held at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland (25—29 September 2016). Authors include scientists, academics, practitioners, regulators and other key individuals with expertise and experience relevant to specific areas. Papers include domain specific applications as well as general modelling methods. Papers cover evaluation of contemporary solutions, exploration of future challenges, and exposition of concepts, methods and processes. Topics include human factors, occupational health and safety, dynamic and systems reliability modelling, maintenance optimisation, uncertainty analysis, resilience assessment, risk and crisis management.

Wastewater Hydraulics

ISBN: 3642113834
Release Date: 2010-11-25
Genre: Science

The second, enlarged edition of this established reference integrates many new insights into wastewater hydraulics. This work serves as a reference for researchers but also is a basis for practicing engineers. It can be used as a text book for graduate students, although it has the characteristics of a reference book. It addresses mainly the sewer hydraulician but also general hydraulic engineers who have to tackle many a problem in daily life, and who will not always find an appropriate solution. Each chapter is introduced with a summary to outline the contents. To illustrate application of the theory, examples are presented to explain the computational procedures. Further, to relate present knowledge to the history of hydraulics, some key dates on noteworthy hydraulicians are quoted. A historical note on the development of wastewater hydraulics is also added. References are given at the end of each chapter, and they are often helpful starting points for further reading. Each notation is defined when introduced, and listed alphabetically at the end of each chapter. This new edition includes in particular sideweirs with throttling pipes, drop shafts with an account on the two-phase flow features, as well as conduit choking due to direct or undular hydraulic jumps.

Fundamentals of Fluid Power Control

Author: John Watton
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781139480222
Release Date: 2009-08-24
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This exciting reference text is concerned with fluid power control. It is an ideal reference for the practising engineer and a textbook for advanced courses in fluid power control. In applications in which large forces and/or torques are required, often with a fast response time, oil-hydraulic control systems are essential. They excel in environmentally difficult applications because the drive part can be designed with no electrical components and they almost always have a more competitive power/weight ratio compared to electrically actuated systems. Fluid power systems have the capability to control several parameters, such as pressure, speed, position, and so on, to a high degree of accuracy at high power levels. In practice there are many exciting challenges facing the fluid power engineer, who now must preferably have a broad skill set.
