Description

Mechanics of Machines is designed for undergraduate courses in kinematics and dynamics of machines. It covers the basic concepts of gears, gear trains, the mechanics of rigid bodies, and graphical and analytical kinematic analyses of planar mechanisms. An appendix presents twenty-six design projects based on practical, real-world engineering situations.

  • Clear, concise language that introduces the fundamentals to students and expands to advanced topics.
  • Companion website includes 2D models, virtual 3D models, and animations of mechanisms and machines.
  • Also includes an updated instructor's solutions manual to be found on the Ancillary Resource Center (ARC)
