## Mechanism Design: The Practical Kinematics and Dynamics of MachineryHardbound. Mechanism Design is written for mechanical engineers working in industry or, after some practical experience, following a post-graduate course of study. It is unique among modern books on mechanisms in its choice and treatment of topics and in its emphasis on design techniques that can be used within the time and cost constraints that actually occur in industry.This Second Edition contains much new material and reflects the far-reaching developments that have taken place in machine design and new computational methods since the book's first publication in 1982. |
