Hydraulic systems are fluid-driven mechanisms that use the transfer of force through an incompressible liquid to do work. If you're familiar with hydraulic systems, then you know that they permeate our modern-day lives. They can be seen everywhere, on things such bulldozers, backhoes, and heavy machinery on construction sites. They can also be seen in industrial settings on things such as forklifts and hydraulic presses. Even the brakes on your car operate on a hydraulic system!
