Publisher’s Note: The publisher does not guarantee the quality, authenticity, or access to any online entitlements included with the product Products purchased from third-party sellers.
Thousands of drawings and descriptions cover innovations in mechanical engineering Fully revised, this abundantly illustrated reference describes proven mechanical mechanisms and devices.
Each illustration represents a design concept that can be easily recycled for use in new or retrofitted mechanical, electromechanical, or mechatronic products.
Tutorials on the basics of mechanisms and motion control systems introduce you to these topics or act as a refresher.
Handbook of Mechanical Mechanisms and Devices, Fifth Edition, contains new chapters on mechanisms for converting renewable energy into electrical energy, 3D digital prototyping and simulation, and advances in microelectromechanical systems and nanotechnology based on carbon nanotubes.
A new chapter on stationary and mobile robots describes their roles in industry, science, national defense, and medicine.
The latest developments in rapid prototyping are also discussed.
This practical guide will help you learn about many classic mechanical devices as well as hot new topics in mechanical engineering.
