## Description

Design Theory of Fluidic Components is an 11-chapter text that discusses the most pertinent results of fluidics research and in closely related fields.
After providing an overview of the basic components and design theory of fluidics, this book goes on exploring the passive fluid components and the theory of jets. The following chapters specifically deal with the factors that give rise to lumped resistance, capacitance, and inductance, as well as the fluid transients in lines. These topics are followed by discussions on various jet velocity distributions and a simplified theory of motion of jets in a pressure gradient. The remaining six chapters are devoted to the active fluidic components, and begin with an examination of the characteristic curves that are necessary to describe the performance of the active components. These chapters also cover the extent to which the performance of specific fluidic components can be predicted analytically. This book is of great value to fluidic research engineers and graduate mechanical engineering students.
