The Fluid Power OpenCourseWare (FPOCW) project brings you free, high quality, college level teaching materials in fluid power. The objective of this project is to increase the number of engineers trained in fluid power.

The material on this site can be used for self study or could be incorporated into a college engineering course. Material is suitable for courses devoted to fluid power or can be inserted into a core engineering science course, for example thermodynamics or system dynamics. 

The FPOCW project is brought to you by the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power, an NSF Engineering Research Center.

What is Here?

College level curriculum and related material in the field of fluid power. Examples are tutorial books, lecture notes from leading engineering college faculty, documentation on constructing fluid power education lab experiments, lists of fluid power text book, video and online resources.
