From the Publisher

Fluid Power Dynamics is a 12-chapter book in two sections covering the basics of fluid power through hydraulic system components and troubleshooting. The second section covers pneumatics from basics through to troubleshooting.

This is the latest book in a new series published by Butterworth-Heinemann in association with PLANT ENGINEERING magazine. PLANT ENGINEERING fills a unique information need for the men and women who operate and maintain industrial plants: It bridges the information gap between engineering education and practical application. As technology advances at increasingly faster rates, this information service is becoming more and more important. Since its first issue in 1947, PLANT ENGINEERING has stood as the leading problem-solving information source for America's industrial plant engineers, and this book series will effectively contribute to that resource and reputation.

Soft, flexible arms wrapped around the fish, enfolding it in a squishy, mechanical embrace—until the robot relaxed, unfurled its arms, and let the startled prey swim away. The multi-limbed machine is a soft robot, and while it may just be annoying fish in a lab today, it offers a promise of medical innovations for humans in the future. Hydrogels are the key to this robot's fishing
