A practical guide to designing, developing, building, troubleshooting, and maintaining fluid power pumps and motors for transmitting power hydraulically Fluid Power Pumps and Motors: Analysis, Design and Controls focuses on the high-performance, axial-piston, swash-plate type machine, providing a thorough analysis of the machine itself and presenting design guidelines for machine components. The book is intended for the engineer building and developing hydraulic systems to help analyze, design, control, and maintain hydrostatic pumps and motors. It also serves as a supplemental textbook. Covers analysis, design, and control considerations of hydrostatic machines - pumps and motors Example problems illustrate the usefulness of the equations The most comprehensive and up-to-date book on axial piston machinery Teaches engineers how to design valve-plates within axial-piston machinery Considers the variable displacement control problem using transient analysis and modeling Results and techniques presented reduce product delivery lead-time and costs and increase accuracy of troubleshooting
Noah Manring is the Glen A. Barton Professor for Fluid Power in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at the University of Missouri-Columbia (UMC). Before joining the faculty at UMC, he worked for eight years in the off-highway mobile equipment industry. Dr. Manring holds ten U.S. patents for innovations in the field of fluid power. As a professor, he has received research funding from Caterpillar, Inc., Festo Corp., and the National Fluid Power Association, among others, as well as the U.S. Department of Education, the National Science Foundation, and various private donors. Dr. Manring currently serves as the Associate Dean for Research in the College of Engineering at the University of Missouri. He has done consulting work for several industrial firms, including Moog Inc., FMC Wyoming Corp., Dennison Hydraulics, and Parker Hannifin.
