Hydraulics is a topic of science and engineering dealing with the mechanical properties of liquids.
Hydraulics is part of the more general discipline of fluid power. Fluid mechanics focuses on the engineering uses of fluid properties. Hydraulic topics range through most science and engineering disciplines, and cover concepts such as pipe flow, dam design, fluid control circuitry, pumps, turbines, hydropower, computational fluid dynamics, flow measurement, river channel behavior and erosion.
However if used incorrectly, hydraulic instruments can result in weird occurrences because of the nature of high pressure fluids.
