Abstract : Fluid power is the use of fluids (liquid/air) under high pressure to generate, control, and transmit power. Fluid power systems are used to transmit power from a central source to industrial users over extended geographic areas. Fluid power actuator consists of cylinder or motor that uses fluid power to assist mechanical operation. The mechanical motion gives an output in terms of linear, rotatory, or oscillatory motion. This chapter deals the different types of fluid power actuators and its application in the field of mechanical engineering.
