Power transmission

The same pressure applies at every point in a closed system. For this reason, the shape of the container has no significance. Where a container is formed as shown in the diagram, it is possible to transmit forces. The fluid pressure can be described by means of the following equations:

Pressure transmission

If a force FT1T acts via an area AT1T on an enclosed liquid, a pressure p is produced which extends throughout the whole of the liquid (Pascal’s Law). The same pressure applies at every point of the closed system (see diagram). Owing to the fact that hydraulic systems operate at very high pressures, it is […]

Hydraulic Force, Area

Every body exerts a specific pressure p on its base. The value of this pressure is dependent on the force due to weight F of the body and on the size of the area A on which the force due to weight acts. The diagram shows two bodies with different bases (AT1T and AT2T). Where […]

Hydraulic pressure

Hydraulics is the science of forces and movements transmitted by means of liquids. It belongs alongside hydro-mechanics. A distinction is made between hydrostatics – dynamic effect through pressure times area – and hydrodynamics – dynamic effect through mass times acceleration. Hydrostatic pressure is the pressure which rises above a certain level in a liquid owing […]

What do we mean by hydraulics?

{0 Comments}

Hydraulic systems are used in modern production plants and manufacturing installations. By hydraulics, we mean the generation of forces and motion using hydraulic fluids. The hydraulic fluids represent the medium for power transmission. The object of this book is to teach you more about hydraulics and its areas of application. We will begin with the […]
