Learners examine the differences and similarities between hydraulic and pneumatic systems.
Statics - Trig: Law of Cosines Using a TI-86 Calculator
By Steve Whitmoyer
In this interactive and animated object, learners apply the Law of Cosines to determine forces using a TI-86 calculator.
Hydraulic Schematic Symbol Flashcards
By John Rosz
This interactive object is designed to help learners memorize schematic symbols used in hydraulic diagrams. Learners quiz themselves using electronic flashcards.
Current Source Approximations
By Patrick Hoppe
Learners examine first and second approximations and view examples of a "stiff" current source.
Hydraulic Directional Control Valves
By Terry Bartelt
In this animated activity, learners examine the operation of hydraulic directional control valves and the internal components that divert the fluid.
The Hydraulic Pressure Switch
This animated lesson shows several ways that a hydraulic pressure switch, connected in a ladder circuit, causes the cylinder of a hydraulic circuit to perform various applications.
By Terry Bartelt, Stephen Schneider
In this animated activity, learners examine how cavitation occurs in a hydraulic pump. A video clip is included. Learners then test their knowledge in a brief quiz.
In this animated object, learners examine how aeration develops in a hydraulic pump. A brief quiz completes the activity.
The Hydraulic Color Code
Learners read an explanation of the color code used on schematic diagrams for hydraulic circuits. Circuit examples for each color are shown.
Pneumatic Air Conservation
In this animated activity, learners read about air loss in a pneumatic system and ways to reduce the leakage. The object includes audio.
