The book titled Hydraulic Control Systems by Merritt,

is a classic that is on pretty much every shelf of academic,

professors who are teaching or doing research in fluid power.

It was written in 1967, but has, it's a wonderful background on both how to

model and analyze systems and how to control systems.

And then a few years ago, there's a terrific update, written by Noah Manring,

which has the same title Hydraulic Control Systems and, and kind of takes

the information that was in the Merritt book and, brings it more up to date.

So this is another, really good one for

you to take a look at if you want to get more into hydraulic control systems.

Then the last one we have on the desk is one of a number of specialty books, and

this one is if you really want to get into the details of modeling complex systems.

It takes you kind of down into the, the depths of how you

think about mathematical models, and how you simulate complex fluid power systems.

>> Mm-hm.

So in addition to these texts books, some other resources is simply conferences.

There are a number of fluid power conferences throughout the world.

And I, I have a list of, of some of the, the more popular ones here.

But obviously it's quite, quite challenging when we

have people all over the world saying this is the conference you should go to.

And so with that said, there is a calendar that's quite,

kept quite up to date that is listed right here at this website.

So I'd suggest that if you're interested in attending a Fluid Power conference,

go to this calendar and see what is close to you, and, and, what dates would,

would work with your schedule.

Now, in addition to the conference proceedings that come out of that and,

and some great papers that are presented.

You can also look at, at, some scientific journals.

And there's a number of, of different journals where you see

fluid power articles but the, the primary one that is carrying the majority of the,

the content and is specialized for fluid power is,

The International Journal of Fluid Power, which I have the, the masthead here.

And in addition to this, there are a few, trade publications such as I listed,

Fluid Power Journal and Hydraulics and Pneumatics.

There's a few others as well but these are really the, the most dominant ones.

But just a place where you can go and get more information about fluid power.
