Principles and baselines related to teaching and learning
The course is carried out partly in Moodle-learning environment and partly lectures. One desing project work and weekly web questions are also essential part of the course.
After the course the student will have basic knowledge of basic theory of water hydraulics, water hydraulic components and systems, and their application in design of machines and equipment.
|Content||Core content||Complementary knowledge||Specialist knowledge|
|1.||Basic theory of water hydraulics.||Pressure drop calculation in different flow paths||Cavitation in seat valves|
|2.||The structure and operation of water hydraulic pumps.||Special pumps, pressure converters|
|3.||The structure and operation of water hydraulic actuators.||Sealing solutions in water hydraulic cylinders|
|4.||The structure and operation of water hydraulic valves.||Special valves|
|5.||The structure and operation of water hydraulic accumulators,filters and reservoirs.||The operation of different filter types|

Evaluation criteria for the course
Evaluation is made according to written final exam. When the student has adopted the core content well, it is possible to get grade 3. To reach grade 4 the student must also adopt complementary knowledge issues. The get grade 5 the student must also adopt specialist knowledge issues. If there is minor shortages is core content, the studen has possibility get grade 1 or 2. If there are major shortages is core content, the student will not pass the course.
Numerical evaluation scale (1-5) will be used on the course
