Overview

Design of Machinery has established itself as the best-selling text for courses in Machine Dynamic and Kinematics,taken by mechanical engineering students in their junior and senior year. The book is praised for its friendly writing style,clear exposition of difficult topics,thorough and relevant coverage,its emphasis on synthesis and design,and its useful computer programs. The foremost goal of the author is to convey the art of the design process to prepare students for genuine engineering problems encountered in professional practice. While both thorough and complete on the topics of analysis,the book also emphasizes the synthesis and design aspects of the subject to a greater degree than any other similar book on the market today. Analytical synthesis of linkages is covered and cam design is given a more thorough and practical treatment than in any other text.

Now this New Media Version of The Design of Machinery combines all of the latest technology while retaining everything that made the second edition so popular. The book is now packaged with a CD-ROM that is full of new enhancements and multimedia additions.
