Here is the listing of Best reference books on Kinematics and Dynamics of Machines.
|1. “Kinematics and Dynamics of Planar Mechanisms” by Paul B.|
|2. “Mechanical Vibrations” by Tse F. S., Morse I.E. and Hinkle R. T.|
|3. “Introductory Course on Theory and Practice of Mechanical Vibrations” by Rao J. S. and Gupta K.
Book Review: The book provides concepts free and forced vertex, transient vibrations of single and multiple degrees of freedom, lumped parameter systems and its applications. Various types of numerical methods are also presented in matrix form. The book also contains information on finite element method for vibration problem. Chapters on nonlinear and random vibration analysis of different mechanical systems is also included in the book. Experimental methods on vibration analysis are also discussed in detail. Importance is given to modelling of engineering systems.
|4. “Mechanical Vibrations” by Den Hartog J. P.
Book Review: The author explains complex problems in a simple method supported by different illustrative models. The various topics illustrated in the book are kinematics of vibration, degrees of freedom, gyroscopic effects, relaxation oscillations, karman vortices and systems with variable velocity. There are various number of problems with answers which will test the understandability of the student in every section. The book contains easy to learn derivation and clear understanding of the concepts along with explanation.
|5. “Theory of Machines and Mechanisms” by Uicker J.J., Pennock G.R. and Shigley J.E.
Book Review: The book covers topics of displacement, velocity, static forces, dynamic forces and acceleration which will help in the design of mechanical linkage, geared systems and cams. The author presents various notations which will assist students in understanding various technical concepts in the field of mechanisms, kinematics and dynamics. Graphical method of analysis is used throughout the book because graphical computation provides visual feedback that improves the students understanding of basic nature and interplay between the equations. This book is useful for mechanical engineering students who are taking course in kinematics.
|6. “Theory of Machines” by Rattan S.S
Book Review: Dynamics and Kinematics are the major subjects covered in this book. The book also illustrates the practical and theoretical working of machines. The topics are presented in simple and easy to understand language. All the physical derivations in the book are done using simple procedures of mathematics . Various topics like mechanisms, machines, belts, ropes, chains have been demonstrated very effectively. Different concepts and theories have wider explanation which helps the students in understanding the chapters with more ease.
