Power Transmission and Motion Control: PTMC 2002

Power Transmission and Motion Control 2002 covers a broad range of topics in the form of papers presented at the annual international Workshop held at the University of Bath. Including presentations from an international spectrum of twenty-seven authors, this volume covers the following topics: - Modelling - Simulation - Control and identification - Pumps - Transmissions - Fluids - Materials - Actuation systems - Components and systems - Noise and vibration The principal focus is on hydraulic and pneumatic devices and systems, although other forms of power transmission media are also addressed. Power Transmission and Motion Control 2002 will be of particular interest to researchers and practitioners working in the fields of mechatronics, power transmission, and motion control.
