Papers from a workshop held at the University of Bath focus on hydraulic and pneumatic devices and systems, although other forms of power transmission media are also addressed. Themes are modeling and simulation, pumps, transmissions, fluids and materials, actuation systems, control and identification, components, pneumatics, and noise and vibration. Specific topics include positioning control of a hydraulic press by a variable speed motor, using viscosity to improve spool agility, passive and active vibration isolation of manually controlled axial piston pumps, and developing a robot arm using pneumatic artificial muscles. The book will be of interest to researchers and practitioners in mechatronics, power transmission, and motion control. The editors are affiliated with the Center for Power Transmission and Motion Control at the University of Bath, UK. The book is distributed by ASME. There is no subject index. Annotation c.
