Theory of Machines and Mechanisms, Fifth Edition, is an ideal text for the complete study of displacements, velocities, accelerations, and static and dynamic forces required for the proper design of mechanical linkages, cams, and geared systems. The authors present the background, notation, and nomenclature essential for students to understand the various independent technical approaches that exist in the field of mechanisms, kinematics, and dynamics. The fifth edition features streamlined coverage and substantially revised worked examples. This latest edition also includes a greater number of problems, suitable for in-class discussion or homework, at the end of each chapter. FEATURES * Offers balanced coverage of all topics by both graphic and analytic methods * Covers all major analytic approaches * Provides high-accuracy graphical solutions to exercises, by use of CAD software * Includes the method of kinematic coefficients and also integrates the coverage of linkages, cams, and geared systems * An Ancillary Resource Center (ARC) offers an Instructor's Solutions Manual, solutions to 100 of the problems from the text using MatLab, and PowerPoint lecture slides * A Companion Website includes more than 100 animations of key figures from the text

The Theory Of Machines Or Mechanism And Machine Theory Is A Basic Subject Taught In Engineering Schools To Mechanical Engineering Students. This Subject Lays The Foundation On Which Mechanical Engineering Design And Practice Rests With. It Is Also A Subject Taught When The Students Have Just Entered Engineering Discipline And Are Yet To Formulate Basics Of Mechanical Engineering. This Subject Needs A Lost Of Practice In Solving Engineering Problems And There Is Currently No Good Book Explaining The Subject Through Solved Problems. This Book Is Written To Fill Such A Void And Help The Students Preparing For Examinations. It Contains In All 336 Solved Problems, Several Illustrations And 138 Additional Problems For Practice. Basic Theory And Background Is Presented, Though It Is Not Like A Full Fledged Text Book In That Sense.This Book Contains 20 Chapters, The First One Giving A Historical Background On The Subject. The Second Chapter Deals With Planar Mechanisms Explaining Basic Concepts Of Machines. Kinematic Analysis Is Given In Chapter 3 With Graphical As Well As Analytical Tools. The Synthesis Of Mechanisms Is Given In Chapter 4. Additional Mechanisms And Coupler Curve Theory Is Presented In Chapter 5. Chapter 6 Discusses Various Kinds Of Cams, Their Analysis And Design. Spur Gears, Helical Gears, Worm Gears And Bevel Gears And Gear Trains Are Extensively Dealt With In Chapters 7 To 9. Hydrodynamic Thrust And Journal Bearings (Long And Short Bearings) Are Considered In Chapter 10.Static Forces, Inertia Forces And A Combined Force Analysis Of Machines Is Considered In Chapters 11 To 13. The Turning Moment And Flywheel Design Is Given In Chapter 14. Chapters 15 And 16 Deal With Balancing Of Rotating Parts, Reciprocating Parts And Four Bar Linkages. Force Analysis Of Gears And Cams Is Dealt With In Chapter 17. Chapter 18 Is Concerned With Mechanisms Used In Control, Viz., Governors And Gyroscopes. Chapters 19 And 20 Introduce Basic Concepts Of Machine Vibrations And Critical Speeds Of Machinery.A Special Feature Of This Book Is The Availability Of Three Computer Aided Learning Packages For Planar Mechanisms, Their Analysis And Animation, For Analysis Of Cams With Different Followers And Dynamics Of Reciprocating Machines, Balancing And Flywheel Analysis.

This Book Evolved Itself Out Of 25 Years Of Teaching Experience In The Subject, Moulding Different Important Aspects Into A One Year Course Of Mechanism And Machine Theory. Basic Principles Of Analysis And Synthesis Of Mechanisms With Lower And Higher Pairs Are Both Included Considering Both Kinematic And Kinetic Aspects. A Chapter On Hydrodynamic Lubrication Is Included In The Book. Balancing Machines Are Introduced In The Chapter On Balancing Of Rotating Parts. Mechanisms Used In Control Namely, Governors And Gyroscopes Are Discussed In A Separate Chapter. The Book Also Contains A Chapter On Principles Of Theory Of Vibrations As Applied To Machines. A Solution Manual To Problems Given At The End Of Each Chapter Is Also Available. Principles Of Balancing Of Linkages Is Also Included. Thus The Book Takes Into Account All Aspects Of Mechanism And Machine Theory To The Reader Studying A First Course On This Subject.This Book Is Intended For Undergraduate Students Taking Basic Courses In Mechanism And Machine Theory. The Practice Of Machines Has Been Initially To Use Inventions And Establishment Of Basic Working Models And Then Generalising The Theory And Hence The Earlier Books Emphasises These Principles. With The Advancement Of Theory Particularly In The Last Two Decades, New Books Come Up With A Stress On Specific Topics.The Book Retains All The Aspects Of Mechanism And Machine Theory In A Unified Manner As Far As Possible For A Two Semester Course At Undergraduate Level Without Recourse To Following Several Text Books And Derive The Benefits Of Basic Principles Recently Advanced In Mechanism And Machine Theory.

This book meets the requirements of undergraduate and postgraduate students pursuing courses in mechanical, production, electrical, metallurgical and aeronautical engineering. This self-contained text strikes a fine balance between conceptual clarity and practice problems, and focuses both on conventional graphical methods and emerging analytical approach in the treatment of subject matter. In keeping with technological advancement, the text gives detailed discussion on relatively recent areas of research such as function generation, path generation and mechanism synthesis using coupler curve, and number synthesis of kinematic chains. The text is fortified with fairly large number of solved examples and practice problems to further enhance the understanding of the otherwise complex concepts. Besides engineering students, those preparing for competitive examinations such as GATE and Indian Engineering Services (IES) will also find this book ideal for reference. KEY FEATURES  Exhaustive treatment given to topics including gear drive and cam follower combination, analytical method of motion and conversion phenomenon.  Simplified explanation of complex subject matter.  Examples and exercises for clearer understanding of the concepts.

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.
