Theory Of Machines And Mechanisms covers the syllabus for the subject in engineering courses.
Summary Of The Book
Theory of machines is the study of the component parts of a machine and their movements. It also studies the forces acting on them and their effects. The study of the underlying theory is essential to help engineers in designing machines and in working with them.
Theory Of Machines And Mechanisms provides focused coverage of the fundamental concepts and theories involved in the field. The book covers the academic syllabus prescribed for engineering studies.
It begins with an overview of Basic Concepts and provides some Definitions. It then discusses Inertia and Motion. The book then focuses on concepts related to Velocity and Acceleration in Mechanisms. It looks at Acceleration Polygon method, Velocity Polygons and Instantaneous Centre method.
The book then discusses Gyroscope, Dynamometers, Brakes, Cams, Chain Drives, Ropes and Belts. It also explains concepts like Copying Devices and Straight Lines, in the context of Lower Pairs in Mechanisms.
The text also covers concepts like Inertial Force Analysis in Machines, Friction, Mechanical Vibrations, and the Balancing of Rotating Masses. It discusses Toothed Gears, Governors, Trifilar Suspension, Gear Trains, Hooke’s Joints Steering Gears etc.
The book also covers Flywheels and Turning Moment Diagrams, and Automotive Vehicle Propulsion. It then explains Principles of Analysis of Mechanisms. It also provides information on Introductions to Kinematic Synthesis, Automatic Control, and Computer Aided Analysis and Computer Aided Synthesis of Machines.
The author explains the topics clearly, with illustrations. The coverage of Theory Of Machines And Mechanisms confines itself to the syllabus, especially the syllabus prescribed by the Uttar Pradesh Technical University (UPTU) and Uttarakhand Technical University (UTU).
