Kinematic Differential Geometry and Saddle Synthesis of Linkages

Front Cover
John Wiley & Sons, Jul 27, 2015 - Technology & Engineering - 450 pages

With a pioneering methodology, the book covers the fundamental aspects of kinematic analysis and synthesis of linkage, and provides a theoretical foundation for engineers and researchers in mechanisms design.

• The first book to propose a complete curvature theory for planar, spherical and spatial motion
• Treatment of the synthesis of linkages with a novel approach
• Well-structured format with chapters introducing clearly distinguishable concepts following in a logical sequence dealing with planar, spherical and spatial motion
• Presents a pioneering methodology by a recognized expert in the field and brought up to date with the latest research and findings
• Fundamental theory and application examples are supplied fully illustrated throughout
