Title: Machines and Mechanisms
Author: David Myszka
ABOUT THE BOOK
The objective of this book is to provide the techniques necessary to study the motion of machines. A focus is placed on the application of kinematic theories to real-world machinery.
It is intended to bridge the gap between a theoretical study of kinematics and the application to practical mechanisms. Students completing a course of study using this book should be able to determine the motion characteristics of a machine.
The topics presented in this book are critical in machine design process as such analyses should be performed on design concepts to optimize the motion of a machine arrangement.
Don’t Miss: Theory of Machines Books
The approach of applying theoretical developments to practical problems is consistent with the philosophy of engineering technology programs.
This book is primarily oriented toward mechanical- and manufacturing-related engineering technology programs. It can be used in either associate or baccalaureate degree programs.
