Three U.S. professors of mechanical engineering present a textbook on kinematics and dynamics of machines. They stress the analytic and synthetic use of graphical computing, but also use conventional methods of vector analysis. After introductory chapters on kinematic analysis, the text examines the selection, specification, design, and sizing of mechanisms for specific motion objectives. The dynamics of machines, understood as the consequences of proposed mechanism design specification, is explored in reference to final operation, forces produced, and unexpected operating results.
