General Information

In the event "Fluid Technology for Mobile Applications" you will get an insight into the topic of mobile hydraulic machines. Due to strict limits for agricultural machinery/construction machinery and the rising cost of raw materials, manufacturers are developing ever more efficient drive concepts that are very different from industrial hydraulics. The most important drive concepts and their functionality will be presented in detail. In the exercises you will learn how to calculate and design such systems. Lecturers from the industry will impart current lecture contents with a high practical relevance.
