Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim is to deepen the knowledge in the field of diagnostics and measurement of hydraulic and pneumatic components and systems. Students practically verify experimental methods in the field and apply the acquired knowledge and measurement results in other subjects taught concurrently or in the following semester.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


The subject of Experimental Methods in the Field of Hydraulics and Pneumatics is a continuation of the subject of the bachelor's study Technical Diagnostics and Reliability of Hydraulic Mechanisms. Basic knowledge of diagnostics and measurement of parameters of hydraulic and pneumatic components and systems is applied and developed. The subject focuses on practical exercises and measurements and is thus a suitable complement to the subjects Hydraulic Components and Systems and Pneumatic Components and Systems.
