The CCEFP will host the next installment of their 2016 Webinar Series on Wednesday, September 14, which will feature three presentations. The projects covered will be “Portable Pneumatically Powered Orthoses,” “Simulation, Rheology and Efficiency of Polymer Enhanced Fluids,” and “Controlled Stirling Power Unit.”
The Webinar Series is a monthly webcast about research, workforce and special topic presentations hosted by the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power and sponsored by NFPA. The presentations offer a great opportunity to learn more about fluid power research projects at the CCEFP and how they benefit the fluid power industry. The next installment is July 13 and covers the Four-Quadrant Multi-Fluid Pump/Motor, Noise Transmission through Pump Casing, and the Control and Prognostic of Electro-Hydraulic Machines projects. Interested members can sign up for the Webinar Series by following this link. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email and relevant reminders containing information about joining the CCEFP Webinar.
All webinars will take place Wednesday afternoons at 1:00pm Eastern/ 12:00pm Central. Here is the current webinar topic schedule:

We all know that of the ways to get more fluid power-educated engineers is to increase their exposure to fluid power classes and concepts during their college careers. The NFPA Education and Technology Foundation has awarded grants to university professors to develop new curricula that can be used at their universities but, just as importantly,…
NFPA’s Fluid Power Action Challenge attracts thousands of students across the US and Canada each year. Teams of students get the opportunity to build fluid power mechanical kits using balsawood and syringes. By using the How It Works website, NFPA hopes to encourage educators and event planners to set up Fluid Power Action Challenges within their communities.
