About the book

MECHANICS OF MACHINES, Third Edition while emphasising the industrial relevance of the subject matter, dispenses with conventional inaccurate graphical methods used in Mechanics of Machinery and presents general vector approach for both plane and space dynamic problems. NEW TO THE THIRD EDITION: Length of vee belts and its selection Commercial balancing machines, merits and demerits Dynamics of diesel electric locomotives and their merits over steam locomotives


Key Features

  • Efficiency of all types of gears and guidelines for the choice of transmission Involute gear geometry and non standard gears Field balancing of rotors User friendly computer programmes Hints to solutions to most problems Elegant vector approach to dynamic analysis Challenging problems in epicyclic gear trains Significance of speed of operation in machines
