THEORY OF MACHINES, 3/e 3rd Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.492

Theory Of Machines is meant to cover the syllabus for courses over two semesters, namely Kinematics of Machinery and Dynamics of Machinery.

Summary Of The Book

Theory Of Machines is a book for the portions of the two-semester course, covering both Kinematics and Dynamics of Machinery. It is laden with problems and solved examples, providing a comprehensive guide for students looking to understand these two subjects thoroughly.

Theory Of Machines begins with an introduction to different types of motion within machines, such as successfully constrained motion and completely constrained motion. Then, the different components of any machine with respect to kinematics, such as links, joints, cams and kinematic pairs are discussed.

The book then explains velocity and acceleration diagrams in detail, from which the characteristics of motion of the machine can be derived completely. There is also a chapter dedicated to cams, where the reader will learn how to trace the motion of the cam in a geometrical and mathematical manner.

Friction is another pertinent concept that is discussed in length in Theory Of Machines, with a number of situations provided, such as friction in brakes, screw jacks, screw threads and in links. Readers will learn how to use the coefficient of friction for different materials to calculate the heat generated and the amount of wear due to friction.

This book is a standard textbook for all students of the mechanical engineering discipline, presenting all the topics under the syllabus for Kinematics and Dynamics of Machinery in a simple and understandable manner. Some of the important features of Theory Of Machines are a balance between the analytical and graphical approaches, computer programs presented in the C language to make them as user-friendly as possible and close to three hundred and fifty solved examples.

There are also completely new sections covering important topics such as Hartmann and Bobillier construction, Chebychev spacing, and the Euler-Savary equation.

In order to ensure that readers, whether they are students or researchers, get an adequate understanding of the subjects covered, Theory Of Machines also has 510 exercise questions and more than 160 objective type questions, providing a complete examination-level preparation.

better than previous

S.S.Rattan was a great book,for studying mechanics,its book his student friendly ,and it is better than other book's such as Thom's bevel and other but this book as some draw backs when compared with R.S.Khurmi,s.s.Rattan was not well instructed when it compared with Khurmi, the book lags pictorial representation
the latest version was better,
S.S.rattan cost you 338 rs where as khurmi cost 645 rs
remember the book contains same theory

It is a unique book. I have not found any other book which is as good as this book for the study of kinematics & dynamics of the machines.
* the concepts are easy to grasp.
* easy language
* covers entire syllabus for mechanics of machinery and dynamics of machinery.
* only one thing missing is this book is not in colour print.

The paper and print quality is good ,no doubt about it and with flipkart offer its a good deal.

BUT, ..You might be disappointed if you are looking for a good subject based or theory oriented text.Its a little hard to understand the theory from such a text.
So if you want to study the subject deeply don't buy this one .Instead go for texts like P V Singh or Khurmi

Less attractive layout but more satisfactory

The book provides you good concepts with self-explanatory language. It is well proven for all the exams whether it is your semester exam or some competitive exam. Refine the topics you require to cover rather than reading each and everything in this book as it is a pack of almost all topics of Theory of Machines.

It is one of the best books in Theory of Machinery

It is an understatement to call this a 'book'. It is infact an encyclopedia of Theory of Machines. Well explained concepts and good number of solved examples.

This book is structured in such a way that it can be used by all levels of learners, right from beginners to the advanced learners in TOM.

Excellent explanation

The topics which are covered in this books have been explained quite well. But I also recommend to have a look on TOM by R S Khurmi. (View complete review)

Great book......great service....

Flipkart delivered my book well in advance, so no complaints about that. The book itself is pretty good for mechanical and production engineering students, with clear instructions and ample number of solved and unsolved questions. It was definitely worth it. (View complete review)
