Course content
Obsah:The subject includes topics focused on the management systems of the vehicle and its parts. Specification (thematic destination) will be given with respect to the theme of the dissertation in the individual study plan. Overview main themes: The course is focused on fluid power systems and presents a basic overview of the principles of transmission speed, power and torque and examples acquainted with the function of selected types of hydraulic and pneumatic drives. Basic section contains the following topics: Liquids and their properties. Energy transfer, balance of power, and heat dissipation calculation. The track circuits - the elements and transducers. Properties and characteristics of drives. Operating states and drive control.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Monological explanation (lecture, presentation,briefing), Self-study (text study, reading, problematic tasks, practical tasks, experiments, research, written assignments), Individual consultation
  • Individual project - 20 hours per semester
  • Home preparation for classes - 30 hours per semester
  • Contacts hours - 28 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
Hydraulic and Pneumatic Mechanisms Objective: Study course is designed for doctoral candidates. To contribute to the expansion of knowledge in the study area and provide new insights for the development of the doctoral thesis. Aims: The course aims to provide students with knowledge of the structure and operational processes fluid mechanisms. Selected chapters can be oriented (are focussed) eg. to: - Selected applications Fluid Power - Energy transfer and negative phenomena - The composition of the circuits and control processes - Modeling and Simulation
Students obtain knowledge in accordance with requirements and course programme.
Prerequisites
The prerequisite is the knowledge of the main principles of mechanics (esp. dynamics, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics), as well as basic knowledge about the construction fluid power systems.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral exam, Oral presentation of self-study

Completion of the course assumes the execution subject test.Part of the preparation for the test subject is solving the task at hand - a smaller project. The report with results of independent work (project). The theme can be both a role theoretical and practical - a laboratory experiment to create a model or a computer experiment (simulation).
