Waldron, Kenneth J., Kinzel, Gary L.
Clear principles, practical problems and MATLAB programs - all under one cover! Offering a modern approach to the study of mechanisms and machines, Kenneth Waldron and Gary Kinzel's Second Edition of KINEMATICS, DYNAMICS, AND DESIGN OF MACHINERY presents comprehensive, authoritative coverage of a wide variety of topics, ranging from planar linkage design to spatial mechanisms and robotics. With this text, you'll be able to develop the solid theoretical background and practical knowledge you need to solve real-world problems. Here's how Waldron and Kinzel's approach works: Graphical and analytical methods: The authors introduce analysis using the vector approach, and then present spatial mechanisms using both vectors and matrices. A separate chapter on simple mechanisms: Chapter 2 now covers the analysis of linkages with simple revolute and sliding joints, and serves as an introduction to velocities and accelerations. Tables of equations for easy references: The text develops background equations and then summarizes them in handy tables. These tables allow you to easily program the equations for most mechanisms of interest. Modern software tools: Most of the procedures in the book are covered with MATLAB programs. Real-world problems: Practical problems allow you to apply the basic principles to realistic situations.Waldron, Kenneth J. is the author of 'Kinematics, Dynamics, and Design of Machinery', published 2003 under ISBN 9780471244172 and ISBN 0471244171.
