## AMEE310 Hydraulic and Pneumatic Systems (Fokaides F17)

(AMEE310 F17)

By the end of the course, the students should be able to:

1.Define and Calculate the physical properties of Hydraulic fluids and explain how these properties can affect Fluid Power.

2.Utilize basic physical law principles to explain the concepts of energy and power and derive the equations estimating these quantities in Hydraulic Systems.

3.Calculate fluid rates, velocities, speed of hydraulic cylinder using the continuity equation and apply Bernoulli’s equation to determine the energy transfer within a hydraulic system.

4.Explain the significance of Reynolds number and how it can be used to distinguish between Laminar and Turbulent flow.

5.Define types of pumps (gear, vane, and piston), describe their pumping action and explain their operation.

6.Explain the function and use of pneumatic components and solve problems related to Directional Control Valves, Regulators, Excess Flow and Sequence Valves.
