About The Book Theory Of Mechanisms And Machines
Intended to cater to the needs of undergraduate students in mechanical, production, and industrial engineering disciplines, this book provides a comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals of analysis and synthesis (kinematic and dynamic) of mechanisms and machines. It clearly describes the techniques needed to test the suitability of a mechanical system for a given task and to develop a mechanism or machine according to the given specifications. The text develops, in addition, a strong understanding of the kinematics of mechanisms and discusses various types of mechanisms such as cam-and-follower, gears, gear trains and gyroscope.
This book is recommended in Assam Down Town University, Assam.
