Theory of Machines Book Review:

The Theory of Machines is an important subject to mechanical engineering students of both bachelor's and diploma level. One has to understand the basics of kinematics and dynamics of machines before designing and manufacturing any component. The subject material is presented in such a way that an average student can easily understand the concepts. The graphical methods of analysis are given preference over analytical wherever possible though they lack in accuracy but can be performed quickly. Particular care has been taken to draw diagrams to scale correctly. The results are compared with analytical ones wherever possible. Common doubts that the students have while preparing for the examinations or new faculty in the classrooms have been kept in mind. The same examples are being explained wherever different methods are there instead of giving different examples. The effect of the different parameters on the end result also is shown in the same problem, for example, in cams and governors etc. In the exercises at the end of each chapter, questions from the question papers of various universities are given under three categories ? short answer questions, problems, multiple choice questions. Some of the questions may be seen repeated. One should note that they are being given repeatedly and are important for examination purpose.

Kinematics and Dynamics of Machines Book Review:

Kinematic and dynamic analysis are crucial to the design of mechanism and machines. In this student-friendly text, Martin presents the fundamental principles of these important disciplines in as simple a manner as possible, favoring basic theory over special constructions. Among the areas covered are the equivalent four-bar linkage; rotating vector treatment for analyzing multi-cylinder engines; and critical speeds, including torsional vibration of shafts. The book also describes methods used to manufacture disk cams, and it discusses mathematical methods for calculating the cam profile, the pressure angle, and the locations of the cam. This book is an excellent choice for courses in kinematics of machines, dynamics of machines, and machine design and vibrations.

Fundamentals of Kinematics and Dynamics of Machines and Mechanisms Book Review:

The study of the kinematics and dynamics of machines lies at the very core of a mechanical engineering background. Although tremendous advances have been made in the computational and design tools now available, little has changed in the way the subject is presented, both in the classroom and in professional references. Fundamentals of Kinematics and Dynamics of Machines and Mechanisms brings the subject alive and current. The author's careful integration of Mathematica software gives readers a chance to perform symbolic analysis, to plot the results, and most importantly, to animate the motion. They get to "play" with the mechanism parameters and immediately see their effects. The downloadable resources contain Mathematica-based programs for suggested design projects. As useful as Mathematica is, however, a tool should not interfere with but enhance one's grasp of the concepts and the development of analytical skills. The author ensures this with his emphasis on the understanding and application of basic theoretical principles, unified approach to the analysis of planar mechanisms, and introduction to vibrations and rotordynamics.

Fundamentals of Machine Theory and Mechanisms Book Review:

This book develops the basic content for an introductory course in Mechanism and Machine Theory. The text is clear and simple, supported by more than 350 figures. More than 60 solved exercises have been included to mark the translation of this book from Spanish into English. Topics treated include: dynamic analysis of machines; introduction to vibratory behavior; rotor and piston balanced; critical speed for shafts; gears and train gears; synthesis for planar mechanisms; and kinematic and dynamic analysis for robots. The chapters in relation to kinematics and dynamics for planar mechanisms can be studied with the help of WinMecc software, which allows the reader to study in an easy and intuitive way, but exhaustive at the same time. This computer program analyzes planar mechanisms of one-degree of freedom and whatever number of links. The program allows users to build a complex mechanism. They can modify any input data in real time changing values in a numeric way or using the computer mouse to manipulate links and vectors while mechanism is moving and showing the results. This powerful tool does not only show the results in a numeric way by means of tables and diagrams but also in a visual way with scalable vectors and curves.

Kinematics of Machinery Through HyperWorks Book Review:

The concept of moving machine members during a thermodynamic cycle and the variation of displacements, velocities and accelerations forms the subject of kinematics.The study of forces that make the motion is the subject of kinetics; combining these two subjects leads to dynamics of machinery. When we include the machinery aspects such as links, kinematic chains, and mechanisms to form a given machine we have the subject of Theory of Machines. Usually this subject is introduced as a two-semester course, where kinematics and kinetics are taught simultaneously with thermodynamics or heat engines before progressing to the design of machine members. This book provides the material for first semester of a Theory of Machines- course. Th is book brings in the machine live onto the screen and explains the theory of machines concepts through animations and introduces how the problems are solved in industry to present a complete history in the shortest possible time rather than using graphical (or analytical) methods. Thus the students are introduced to the concepts through visual means which brings industrial applications by the end of the two semester program closer, and equips them better for design courses. The International Federation for promotion of Mechanism and Machine Science (IFToMM) has developed standard nomenclature and notation on Mechanism and Machine Science and this book adopts these standards so that any communication between scientists and in the classrooms across the world can make use of the same terminology. This book adopts HyperWorks MotionSolve to perform the analysis and visualizations, though the book can be used independent of the requirement of any particular software. However, having this software helps in further studies and analysis. The avis can be seen by entering the ISBN of this book at the Springer Extras website at extras.springer.com

Theory of Machines and Mechanisms Book Review:

Theory of Machines and Mechanisms, Third Edition, is a comprehensive study of rigid-body mechanical systems and provides background for continued study in stress, strength, fatigue, life, modes of failure, lubrication and other advanced aspects of the design of mechanical systems. This third edition provides 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 of machines. The authors employ all methods of analysis and development, with balanced use of graphical and analytic methods. New material includes an introduction of kinematic coefficients, which clearly separates kinematic (geometric) effects from speed or dynamic dependence. At the suggestion of users, the authors have included no written computer programs, allowing professors and students to write their own and ensuring that the book does not become obsolete as computers and programming languages change. Part I introduces theory, nomenclature, notation, and methods of analysis. It describes all aspects of a mechanism (its nature, function, classification, and limitations) and covers kinematic analyses (position, velocity, and acceleration). Part II shows the engineering applications involved in the selection, specification, design, and sizing of mechanisms that accomplish specific motion objectives. It includes chapters on cam systems, gears, gear trains, synthesis of linkages, spatial mechanisms, and robotics. Part III presents the dynamics of machines and the consequences of the proposed mechanism design specifications. New dynamic devices whose functions cannot be explained or understood without dynamic analysis are included. This third edition incorporates entirely new chapters on the analysis and design of flywheels, governors, and gyroscopes.

Dynamics of Machinery Book Review:

Dynamic loads and undesired oscillations increase with higher speed of machines. At the same time, industrial safety standards require better vibration reduction. This book covers model generation, parameter identification, balancing of mechanisms, torsional and bending vibrations, vibration isolation, and the dynamic behavior of drives and machine frames as complex systems. Typical dynamic effects, such as the gyroscopic effect, damping and absorption, shocks, resonances of higher order, nonlinear and self-excited vibrations are explained using practical examples. These include manipulators, flywheels, gears, mechanisms, motors, rotors, hammers, block foundations, presses, high speed spindles, cranes, and belts. Various design features, which influence the dynamic behavior, are described. The book includes 60 exercises with detailed solutions. The substantial benefit of this "Dynamics of Machinery" lies in the combination of theory and practical applications and the numerous descriptive examples based on real-world data. The book addresses graduate students as well as engineers.

Theory of Machines and Mechanisms Book Review:

There has been tremendous growth in the area of kinematics and dynamics of machinery in the past 20 years, much of which exists in a large variety of technical papers, each requiring its own background for comprehension. These new developments can be integrated into the existing body of knowledge so as to provide a logical, modern, and comprehensive treatise. Such is the purpose of this book. This book offers outstanding coverage of mechanisms and machines, including important information on how to classify and analyze their motions, how to synthesize or design them, and how to determine their performance when operated as real machines. To develop a broad comprehension, all the methods of analysis and development common to the literature of the field are used. Part I of the book begins with an introduction which deals mostly with theory, nomenclature, notation, and methods of analysis. Serving as an introduction, Chapter 1 also tells what a mechanisms is, what it can do, how it can be classified, and what its limitations are. Chapters 2, 3, and 4 deal with analysis - all the various methods of analyzing the motions of mechanisms. Part II goes into the engineering problems involving the selection, specification, design, and sizing of mechanisms to accomplish specific motion objectives. Part III covers the consequences of the proposed mechanism design. In other words, having designed a machine by selecting, specifying, and sizing the various mechanisms which make up the machine, we tackle such questions as: What happens during the operation of the machine? What forces are produced? Are there any unexpected operating results? Will the proposed design be satisfactory in all respects?
