This updated and enlarged Second Edition provides in-depth, progressive studies of kinematic mechanisms and offers novel, simplified methods of solving typical problems that arise in mechanisms synthesis and analysis - concentrating on the use of algebra and trigonometry and minimizing the need for calculus.;It continues to furnish complete coverage of: key concepts, including kinematic terminology, uniformly accelerated motion, and the properties of vectors; graphical techniques for both velocity and acceleration analysis; analytical techniques; and ready-to-use computer and calculator programmes for analyzing basic classes of mechanisms.;This edition supplies detailed explications of such new topics as: gears, gear trains, and cams; velocity and acceleration analyses of rolling elements; acceleration analysis of sliding contact mechanisms by the effective component method; four-bar analysis by the parallelogram method; and centre of curvature determination methods.;This edition supplies detailed explications of such new topics as: gears, gear trains, and cams; velocity and acceleration analyses of rolling elements; acceleration analysis of sliding contact mechanisms by the effective component method; ...
