About This Book

Critical decisions must be made by designers and users of fluid power systems that can seriously affect the future of their companies. With international competition growing steadily, staying abreast of technological trends in a field as broad as fluid power is increasingly difficult. Much of the world's attention seems to be focued on energy and manpower issues, but many identifiable technological changes are also occurring. This book concentrates on factors that are causing those changes and examines their relevance. The book provides the reader with an effective design and operational philosophy that can serve as a guide in making decisions about fluid power system appraisals. This book, written by Dr. E. C. Fitch in 1982, is as relevant and popular now as it was over 35 years ago.
