Basic Hydraulic Principles

Hydraulic Pressure and Force

Pressure is the force per unit area exerted on a surface, divided by the area of that surface.

Pressure = Force/Surface Area

Therefore hydraulic pressure is the force per unit area exerted by a fluid on the surface within the container.

 

Hydraulic Pressure and Force

For the demonstration of this relationship, is interactive animation on the left is simple yet effective. Buttons on screen provide the instructor with control over the force applied whilst pressure and force are clearly indicated numerically and through use of colour.

The animation is part of our instructor pack for basic hydraulic principles, available for use in schools and colleges and includes interactive material to provide tutorials on all of the following:

A demonstration of Pascal's Law...
The relationship between hydraulic pressure and force...
How a simple hydraulic system works...
An example of a simple interactive hydraulic braking system...
How a hydraulic swash plate pump works...

Operation of a hydraulic NRV (non-return valve)...
