CLASS CODE: ENGRT 236 CREDITS:  3
DIVISION: PHYSICAL SCIENCE & ENGINEERING
DEPARTMENT: MECHANICAL ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY
GENERAL EDUCATION: This course does not fulfill a General Education requirement.

CATALOG DESCRIPTION: A study of the fundamental principles governing the transmission and control of fluid power (hydraulic and pneumatics). Includes a study of the basic components of hydraulic and pneumatic systems and circuits.
DESCRIPTION: Fluid Power is the technology that deals with the conversion, transmission, and control of energy by means of a pressurized fluid. It includes hydraulics which utilizes a liquid for the pressurized fluid and pneumatics which utilizes a gas for the pressurized fluid.
TOPICS: The course includes a study of the basic components of hydraulic and pneumatic systems and how they are combined to build up various circuits. (Winter)
OBJECTIVES: To teach the fundamental principles of fluid mechanics which govern the flow of fluids in hydraulic and pneumatic systems.

To acquaint the student with the basic components used in hydraulics and pneumatics. Both the function of the component and its application will be covered.

To apply the above objectives in designing and analyzing circuits which can be used to achieve desired results.
