Can anybody recomend a good fundamentals book for hydraulic systems design.  I am new to the field and am looking for a good resource.  Please recomend any good web sites you know of as well.


RE: Hydraulic Systems design resources

Take a look at www.ifps.org.  This is the site of the Fluid Power Society.  From there you can view books and articles that may be helpful.

RE: Hydraulic Systems design resources

Manufacturer's produce training resources, both short courses and books.  I have had good experience with the Rexroth training in Burlington, Ontario:


Rexroth also sells a series of books Cdn$84 each on various aspects of hydraulics including system design, proportional valves, and automatic controls.  They have pneumatics books as well.  Other companies seem to have similar offerings.  Search around within these pages:




The National Fluid Power Association of the US maintains a clearinghouse of training opportunities:
