MET 260: Hydraulics and Pneumatics
Course Description: Basic principles of fluid mechanics as applied to the areas of fluid power and piping. Topics include hydrostatics, flow equations and pressure loss calculations for pipes and fittings. Characteristics of cylinders, pumps, valves and flow through restrictions such as orifices and nozzles are considered. Laboratory experiments entail the operation of hydraulic and pneumatic devices and make use of computer reduction of data.
