Hydraulics: Harnessing Hydraulic Power is part one of the Hydraulics seven-part training series.
A knowledge of fluid characteristics will help students appreciate the power of fluid and understand how fluids both exert pressure to support loads and flow to move loads.
Course objectives include:
- Identify the conditions that cause fluids to flow and exert pressure
- Explain Pascal's law
- Describe the relationship between fluid pressure and fluid flow
- Identify factors that affect pressure level, flow rate, and fluid velocity in a hydraulic circuit.
