There are a number of interesting applications or devices where fluid elements or fluid circuits with no or almost no moving parts are used. Some of these applications or devices not covered elsewhere are discussed in order to give a general idea of the range of application of the fluid amplification techniques, along with some approaches for solving certain fluid problems. The development of special fluid circuitry for fluid logic devices and fluid computing functions is dealt with in some detail. The objectives sought with fluid interaction devices are to simplify the equipment, to make the entire system compatible throughout, to increase reliability, to reduce cost, to reduce the device susceptibility to the environment such as radiation, temperature, shock, vibration, etc., to facilitate fabrication, to avoid wear, to take advantage of an economical working media, or any number of other special reasons.
