Hydraulics textbook

  1. May 28, 2009 #1
    For my university final year project I'm going to be working with a spin out company who are developing a new type of hyrdualic pump. However, my knowledge of fluid power systems is minimal at best, so can someone recommend me a good textbook so i don't look like a total numpty when I start?

    I have an older copy of this Eaton/Vickers text and it is really good at explaining all of the various types of components you would ever see. I like the diagrams because they color the various flows with different colors so it is easy to pick out areas like the pressure and return sides.
