Theory Of Machines And Mechanisms By John J. Uicker, Gordon R. Pennock, Joseph E. Shigley
Theory of Machines and Mechanisms published in 2009 by Oxford University Press, is the third edition of the textbook meant for both undergraduate and graduate students of mechanical engineering. For the benefit of the students, the book has been divided into three parts. Part one is about kinematics and mechanisms, part two is about the design of mechanisms, and part three is about the dynamics of machines. Part one contains information about basic topics such as velocity, acceleration, position and displacement, and the world of mechanism. Part two explains topics like gears, synthesis of linkages, cam design, robotics, mechanism trains, and so on. Part 3 includes essential topics on the dynamics of machines such as vibration analysis, balancing, cam dynamics, gyroscopes, dynamics of reciprocating engines, flywheels, planar and spatial dynamic force analysis, and static force analysis. The exercises and the solved problems allow the students to practise their knowledge better.
John J. Uicker teaches mechanical engineering in University of Wisconsin, Madison. Gordon R. Pennock teaches mechanical engineering at Purdue University, Indiana. Joseph E. Shigley was a faculty of mechanical engineering at the University of Michigan. Mr. Joseph authored several books on mechanical engineering including Mechanical Engineering Design, Bearings and Lubrication: A Mechanical Designer's Workbook, Fastening, Joining and Connecting: A Mechanical Designer's Workbook.
