Theory of Machines and Mechanisms - 3rd edition

Theory of Machines and Mechanisms (ISBN10: 019515598X; ISBN13: 9780195155983)
ISBN13: 978-0195155983
ISBN10: 019515598X

Summary: Theory of Machines and Mechanisms provides the foundation for the study of displacements, velocities, accelerations, and static and dynamic forces required for the proper design of mechanical linkages, cams, and geared systems. The authors present the background, notation, and nomenclature essential for students to understand the various and independent technical approaches that exist in the field of mechanisms, kinematics, and dynamics. Coverage of all analysis and
development methods is balanced, with the use of both analytic and graphic tools. This text is ideal for senior or graduate students studying mechanical engineering, taking a kinematics and/or machine dynamics course.

Features
  • Includes an introduction to kinematic coefficients, which clearly separates kinematic (geometric) effects from operating speed and other dynamic dependences, and unifies the coverage of linkages with that for cams and geared systems.
  • O Contains entirely new chapters on the analysis and design of flywheels, governors, and gyroscopes.
  • O Provides graphical solutions to exercises, now performed by professional CAD software with an accuracy rate of better than one percent.
  • O Offers new, quality illustrations, now in two colors.
  • O Solutions Manual and PowerPoint Overheads available to adopters only.
  • Includes a balanced coverage of all topics by both graphic and analytic methods.
  • Covers all major analytic approaches
  • Includes an introduction of kinematic coeficients throughout different chapters
