The Division of Fluid and Mechatronic Systems (Flumes) at Linköping University, Sweden, hosted the 17th Scandinavian International Conference on Fluid Power, SICFP’21, June 1-2, 2021.
The conference is arranged on a biannual basis alternating between Linköping University (LiU) and Tampere Technical University, (TUT). The SICFP conference is a forum for exchanging information on the latest developments in fluid power. It is also a forum for socializing and networking among colleagues and friends both from industry and academia.
Fluid power is in an exciting stage of transformation, as requirements on efficiency and environmental compatibility are having a real impact on component and system design. Furthermore, there is an increasing attention to combinations with electrical power systems that may give possibilities to new and more efficient concepts. Increased level of intelligence, sensors, connectivity, and communication in machines, will have great influence on efficiency, operations, and business models.
Papers and presentations was from a wide range of fields of fluid power, such as industrial automation, machines, aircraft, mining, forest, and offshore equipment, etc. Please Proceedings of the 17:th Scandinavian International Conference on Fluid Power, SICFP’21 for more information.
The highest ranked articles at the conference will get the opportunity to be published in a special issue on the International Journal of Fluid Power (dedicated to SICFP).
