Around the World in 14 Days

Yet another exhaustive conference adventure comes to a successful end. PhD researcher Chris Williamson accompanied Dr. Monika Ivantysynova to the 2008 Bath ASME Symposium on Fluid Power and Motion Control in Bath, England. Chris gave a presentation on his paper entitled Efficiency Study of an Excavator Hydraulic System Based on Displacement-Controlled Actuators, and Professor Ivantysynova chaired a session covering "Pumps and Noise." From England, the pair continued to fly east where they landed in Toyama, Japan, for the 7th JFPS International Symposium on Fluid Power. This time Professor Ivantysynova gave a presentation entitled Innovation in Pump Design - What are Future Directions?, and Chris presented a poster on his paper entitled Pump Mode Prediction for Four-quadrant Velocity Control of Valveless Hydraulic Actuators. Great work, and we're glad to have you back!
