Description

For all courses in machine motion, theory of machines, industrial mechanisms, mechanism analysis, mechanism design, and kinematics in departments of engineering technology and application-oriented mechanical engineering programs.

This up-to-date introduction to kinematic analysis ensures relevance by using actual machines and mechanisms throughout. It provides the techniques necessary to study the motion of machines while emphasizing the application of kinematic theories to real-world problems. State-of-the-art techniques and tools are utilized, and analytical techniques are presented without complex mathematics. Reflecting instructor and student feedback, this Fourth Edition’s extensive improvements include: a new section introducing special-purpose mechanisms; expanded descriptions of kinematic properties; clearer identification of vector quantities through standard boldface notation; new timing charts; analytical synthesis methods; and more. All end-of-chapter problems have been reviewed, and many new problems have been added.
