An Introductory Primer on Hydraulics?


I'm looking some something like a dummies book or even less that deals with some of the simpler (maybe) concepts of hydraulics. Maybe something like hydraulics for plumbers or gardeners. Maybe something that answers questions like if water is pumped out of a 2" pipe, which then splits into two pipes, one is 1" and the other 1/2" in diameter, how much of the water flows into each, or what, if any, pressure exists at the end of each of the two pipes? If a 1" pipe is restricted to go into a 1/2" pipe, how is the flow rate determined? Possibly there's 20 page or whatever primer on the web of this sort?

No idea about the web but might look to see if can find the Crane "Flow of Fluids Through Valves, Fittings and Pipe" handbook or publication online. If memory doesn't fail it's Crane Publication 410.

You probably need to search on "fluid dynamics" or "hydrodynamics", not "hydraulics" since "hydraulics" will get you information on hydraulic power systems like on a backhoe.

Have you ever had sex? If you have, you've experienced hydraulics. In fact if you keep pumping a woman without pulling out, she'll suddenly go flying off the end of your dick like a rocket. This is why men generally lay on top of their women to hold them down. But build up enough pressure and she'll blast right out from under you. Try this and you'll be an expert on hydraulics.
