Fundamentals of Kinematics and Dynamics of Machines and Mechanisms

Oleg Vinogradov, 2000, CRC Press, 290 pp., hardcover.

An advanced text emphasizing the understanding and application of basic theoretical principles of kinematics and dynamics of machines and mechanisms. Details the analysis of planar mechanisms and provides an introduction to vibrations and rotordynamics. The text allows students to develop a perception of a mechanism as a whole and an understanding of it as an integral part of the design process. The integration of Mathematica software provides a chance to perform symbolic analysis, to plot the results, and to animate the motion. A CD-ROM packaged with the book contains Mathematica-based programs for suggested design projects. Basic knowledge of Mathematica is required.

Chapters include:
Introduction | Kinematic Analysis of Mechanisms | Force Analysis of Mechanisms | Cams | Gears | Introduction to Linear Vibrations | Bibliography | Appendix | Index

This book is available in the Wolfram Research bookstore.
