The 4th FPNI - Ph. D. Symposium was held June 13-17 in Sarasota, Fla., and was a rousing success. Fluid Power Net International (FPNI) is a world wide community for networking in the area of fluid power and fluid techniques.

Nearly 50 papers were presented on energy efficient hydraulic systems, fluids, simulation and control, mobile applications, valves, pumps, and pneumatics. More than 130 participants from industry, academia, and fluid power manufacturers attended the conference. The next FPNI - PhD conference is set for Cracow, Poland, in July 2008.

History of FPNI

Fluid Power Net International was formed in 1998 with the objective of providing the infrastructure to build an international network of researchers and facilities to carry out major projects, and to:

  • Promote international research cooperation in the field of fluid power technology and related areas,
  • Provide information about worldwide research and industrial activities in the field of fluid power technology and related areas,
  • Promote engineering education in the field of fluid power technology and related fields. 

Fluid Power Net International was a joint initiative of:

  • Fluidteknikk, Institutt for Termisk Energi og Vannkraft (Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway)
  • Institute of Heavy Duty Machines (Cracow University of Technology, Poland)
  • Department of Control and Engineering Design (Technical University of Denmark)
  • Subsea Engineering Research Group, Department of Mechanical Engineering (Monash University, Australia)

FPNI Forums have been discussed and launched to establish and foster and international scientific community in fluid power. Concrete outcomes have been

  • The publication of the International Journal of Fluid Power
  • Since 2000, biannual PhD Symposia
  • Several Conferences on Modelling and Simulation in Fluid power
