This up-to-date book answers the overwhelming need for an introduction to kinematic analysis that uses actual machines and mechanisms. It provides the techniques necessary to study the motion of machines while emphasizing the application of kinematic theories to real-world problems, making it a practical reference work.

Beginning with a comprehensive introduction to the subject, this book covers computer models of mechanisms; vectors; position and displacement analysis; mechanism design; velocity analysis; acceleration analysis; computer-aided mechanism analysis; cams, gears, belt and train drives; screw mechanisms; and static and dynamic force analyses.

For anyone who needs to understand the kinematic theories that are behind the design of mechanisms, including engineers, designers, and machine inventors.
