Summary

This book is intended as a supplement for undergraduate courses in Kinematics or Dynamics of Mechanisms, taught in Mechanical Engineering departments. As a MATLAB® supplement, it can be used with any standard textbook, including Norton's DESIGN OF MACHINERY Second Edition, Erdman/Sandor's MECHANISMS DESIGN, Third Edition, or Mabie/Reinholtz MECHANISMS AND DYNAMICS OF MACHINERY, Fourth Edition. The emphasis of the text is integrating the computational power of MATLAB® into the analysis and design of mechanisms. This new book in Brooks/Cole's Bookware Companion Series? is the first to apply the use of MATLAB® to the study of kinematics and dynamics of mechanisms. This book is intended as a useful guide for readers interested in understanding kinematics, or as a reference for practicing mechanical engineers. It provides detailed instruction and examples showing how to use MATLAB® (increasingly, the software program of choice among engineers for complex computations) and its accompanying simulation environment, SIMULINK®, to develop powerful and accurate computer simulations of constrained mechanical systems.

Benefits :

  • Integrates the use of MATLAB® and SIMULINK® into the kinematics course.
  • Introduces the concept of a kinematic simulation for mechanisms.
  • Allows for fully dynamic simulations without advanced Lagrangian or Hamiltonian Mechanics.
  • Detailed case studies of real engineering problems, using methods described in the text.
  • Discusses the role of simulations in the mechanical design process.
