Learning Outcomes

The course gives the essential knowledge of hydraulic systems and components that are used in off-road applications. After completing the course student - knows components of different kind of hydrostatic transmission types and can design hydrostatic transmission for mobile machine. Student knows basic equations of hydrostaic transmissions and can apply them. - Knows typical implemented systems of mobile machines such cranes, bucket, - knows how open center, closed center and LS-system works and can select components for such a system. - knows different steering systems fo mobile machines and their components and can design steering system - knows electrohydraulic actuators and their features and applicability - can select componets for such application.
