"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."
Using water in hydraulic systems; introduction to water; physical properties of water; water chemistry; water microbiology; corrosion in aqueous systems; water treatment.
"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. "
