Unlike some subjects, the theoretical concepts associated with kinematics and dynamics of machinery have immediate application to practical problems. The authors have made extensive use of practical examples while developing the analytical and graphical skills necessary to analyze linkages, cams, gears, and other mechanisms, and providing a foundation for the study of machine design.

Analytical vector methods and complex number methods are utilized for solving representative linkage problems. These methods are readily programmable, allowing analysis of a complete cycle of motion, using a computer or programmable calculator. Examples of machine calculations are given for specific problems.

This book begins with basic concepts including linkage classification by motion characteristics, degrees-of-freedom of planar and spatial joints and linkages, limiting positions, transmission angles, and linkage interference.

The design and analysis of cams is treated by graphical and analytical methods for various types of followers. The design and analysis of spur, helical, worm, and bevel gears is also treated, including shaft loading. Fixed- and variable-ratio gear grains, as well as other drive trains, are analyzed. Both the tabular and formula methods are applied to analysis of epicyclic trains..
