Mechanism Design: Analysis and Synthesis by Arthur G. ErdmanThis new edition introduces an accompanying CD-ROM that has over 90 video clips of real mechanisms and computer animation. Examples taken from industry and student design projects are cross-referenced with locations within book chapters. Over 60 new problems have been added within chapters or as end-of-chapter exercises. Five chapters have revised sections. This modern introduction to mechanism design provides the reader with sufficient theoretical background to not only understand, but to apply design and analysis skills in engineering practice. While the emphasis is on computer-based analytical methods, graphical methods are also provided to explain basic principles fully.
