Pneumatics Report

In this assignment, you'll be using books, articles, and websites to identify and discuss applications of pneumatics in industry and the marketplace.

You'll need a C.O.D. library card to check out materials from the Library and to use our online resources from home. To get a card, visit the Library Circulation Desk on the first floor of the Library. For more information about C.O.D. library cards please click here.


Books

Use the Library Catalog to find books and e-books in the COD Library on electronics topics. E-books will likely be your best source for information for this assignment.

Example searches

For your assignment, start by using these catalog searches:

Subject: Pneumatics

Subject: Compressed Air Systems

E-books

The Knovel Library is a rich resource of e-book material for electrical engineering topics. Try searching for pneumatics in Knovel Library. You can also choose a book in Knovel then search within the book. Knovel also provides citations for your bibliography.

Here are some useful titles from this collection:
Hydraulics and Pneumatics: A Techinician's and Engineer's Guide
Fluid Power Dynamics
HVAC Control: Operations and Maintenance
Instrumentation Reference Book

Articles

Refer to the Databases tab of the Electronics research guide. For this assignment, use Associates Program Source and Business Source Complete.

Suggested keywords: Pneumatic Control, Pneumatic Systems, or use the specific type of pneumatic device/s that you are interested in (medical pneumatics, etc.)

Websites

There are several tools available for searching the Internet. Using a variety of tools is always a good rule of thumb when looking for information on the web. Google is a great resource but also try some of the other tools on the Library's Search the Web pages. For this assignment, a good technique is to choose your pneumatic application first then do a specific internet search.

Here's a small selection of quality websites for information about uses of pneumatics:
Thomas.net. Manufacturers of pneumatics
Wikipedia has some good ideas (only use this as a reference/starting point.)
What is pneumatics? A brief overview from the National Fluid Power Association.
