Introduction to Hydraulic Systems

A. Bhatia, B.E.

Most modern machinery today uses hydraulics to do work so as to make our lives easier. Think about your car's brakes and how, by stepping on the brake pedal, you apply stopping pressure on the brakes on all four wheels. The ease with which we drive and steer our cars today is because of hydraulics. You see hydraulics at automobile service centers lifting the cars so that mechanics can work underneath them, and many elevators are hydraulically-operated using the same technique. There are numerous such applications that rely on hydraulic force that are obviously very adaptable, but how do they actually work?

This 4-hr course provides an understanding of basic hydraulics and teaches how common hydraulic components function and interact with each other. This course material is based entirely on U.S. Army Field Manual No. 5-499.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
