Presents fundamental theory and principles of design of pneumatic
valves and controls used to regulate pressure, temperature, and flow,
with no coverage of theory of control systems. Covers flow equations,
the series orifice concept, characteristics of butterfly valves and
actuators, and the influence of various types of control. Other
subjects include flow controls, inline/poppet valves, solenoids, and
torque motors, with applications from aircraft design. Includes
numerous b&w simplified linearized block diagrams. No index.
