What is hydraulics? Hydraulics is a science and technology branch that involves the combination of applied sciences, engineering, chemistry, and other products with mechanical properties and liquids. Its counterpart is pneumatics which deals with gases.
Where are hydraulics used? Hydraulics are used in different branches of engineering such as:
Mobile hydraulics: This hydraulic system is controlled manually. There are several types of equipment for buildings and construction, such as cranes, excavators, backhoe, earth moving equipment, etc. Marine: Hydraulics plays a vital role in maintaining stability and control in this industry. Aerospace: Rockets, airplanes, and spaceships have been using hydraulic systems for various hydraulic applications. This industry specifically uses hydraulics for adjusting wings, retraction, and extension of landing gears, brakes, steering, etc. Mining: Fracturing is the advanced mining technique used to extract gases and oils found beneath the earth's surface.
