Overview

Design of Machinery continues the tradition of this best-selling book through its balanced coverage of analysis and design, and outstanding use of realistic engineering examples. Through its reader-friendly style of writing, clear exposition of complex topics, and emphasis on synthesis and design, the text succeeds in conveying the art of design as well as the use of modern tools needed for analysis of the kinematics and dynamics of machinery. Numerous two-color illustrations are used throughout to provide a visual approach to understanding mechanisms and machines. Analytical synthesis of linkages is covered, and cam design is given a more thorough, practical treatment than found in other texts. To provide an integrated look at the use of software tools for analysis and design, Design of Machinery includes a CD-ROM with a fully functioning version of MSC. Working Model 2D v. 5.2, and over 100 Working Model simulations for readers to work with. The CD-ROM also includes the author's updated, user-friendly programs; FOURBAR, FIVEBAR, SIXBAR, SLIDER, DYNACAM, ENGINE and MATRIX. The book's website offers instructor and student resources, a collection of MATLAB simulations, and 100 interactive Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam questions on machine design, kinematics and machine dynamics.
