M-020 Fluid Power Part 3: 6 PDH
Description of the Fluid Power Part 3 course
The Fluid Power Part 3 online 6 PDH course is a part of the Mechanical Engineering category of courses.
Fluid power is a term which was created to include the generation, control, and application of smooth, effective power of pumped or compressed fluids (either liquids or gases) when this power is used to provide force and motion to mechanisms. This force and motion maybe in the form of pushing, pulling, rotating, regulating, or driving. Fluid power includes hydraulics, which involves liquids, and pneumatics, which involves gases. Liquids and gases are similar in many respects.
This course discusses the operation of devices used to measure and regulate the pressure of fluids and to measure the temperature of fluids. It describes the functions and types of reservoirs, strainers, filters, and accumulators, and their uses in fluid power systems. The course also provides guidance on the types and operation of actuators used to transform the energy generated by hydraulic systems into mechanical force and motion.
Finally, the course discusses pneumatics: the origin of pneumatics, the characteristics and compressibility of gases, and the most commonly used gases in pneumatic systems. Also, sections are included to cover safety precautions and the potential hazards of compressed gases. At the end of the course types of diagrams encountered in fluid power systems are identified and discussed. This course also discusses how all components of a hydraulic system are combined to form and operate together as a system.
This course is based on United States Navy Naval Education and Training Materials (NAVEDTRA 12964), “Fluid Power”.
This course is intended for mechanical, civil, process & industrial and oil & gas engineers, and other design and construction professionals wanting to learn about fluid power and its use.
At the end of this PDH online continuing education course, you will be able to:
- Discuss and explain measurement and control devices in a hydraulic system
- Explain function of reservoirs, strainers, filters and accumulators in fluid power systems
- Explain function of actuators in hydraulic power systems
- Calculate properties of different gases and apply kinetic theory of gases
- Apply Boyle’s and Charles’s Law
- Describe various pneumatic gases
- Develop and interpret basic system diagrams
