Fluid Power Design Handbook download linkthis book presents engineering and application information to incorporate, control, predict, and measure the performance of all fluid power components in hydraulic or pneumatic systems. Detailing developments in the ongoing "electronic revolution" of fluid power control, the third edition offers new and enlarged coverage of microprocessor control, "smart" actuators, virtual displays, position sensors, computer-aided design, performance testing, noise reduction, on-screen simulation of complex branch-flow networks, important engineering terms and conversion units. It has a different approach in many of the hydraulics case studies, for example: in evaluating flow through orifices/local resistance to flow, or has good formulas to calculate internal leakage in a spool valve when the spool is centered, or in the case it is eccentric. The book has some interesting comments on cavitation.
It is useful for a beginner to mid career engineer trying to stretch their wings and fly solo; it is a wise/reference type book for an experienced engineer.
