"Showcases the beneftis and potential advantages of water hydraulics over oil-based media. Interweaves examples and excercises throughout the text to illustrate critical concepts, with helpful appendices on abbreviations, symbols, conversion factors, and water contaminants, and glossary sections."
"From the foreword. . . I became excited after reading this book and highly recommend its reading by those in the hydraulic industry and government agencies. [This book] is a needed reference that dispels many scientific judgments by engineers in fluid power. This book is a must; as water hydraulics will be significant in the mobile and industrial sectors in the next five years. "
