Theory of Machines is a comprehensive reference book for B.E and B.Tech students from the Mechanical Engineering stream. Theory of Machines is a book on various concepts related to mechanical engineering. It is aimed at engineering students at the undergraduate level. It is also recommended for aspirants of the UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) exams. The book begins with an introduction to the subject. This is followed by chapters on kinetics and kinematics of motion, velocity and acceleration in mechanisms, friction, gear trains, toothed gearing, dynamo-meters and brakes. Chapters on concepts like cams, rotating and reciprocating masses, transverse and longitudinal vibrations, torsional vibrations, and automatic control are also included in the book. A separate chapter is dedicated to computer-aided analysis and synthesis of mechanisms. The concepts in the book are presented so as to be self-explanatory. Numerous examples, both solved and unsolved, are included wherever relevant to further elucidate the concepts.

“Theory of Machines” is designed mainly for the students of mechanical engineering. It focuses on recent developments on the new mechanisms in the field of kinematics. The text seamlessly combines its 40 year experience with the latest methods to be used by students to understand definitions and problems that are solved using elementary methods. The book covers the entire syllabus with a holistic approach. Contents such as the Kinematics of Motion, Kinetics of Motion, Simple Harmonic Motion, Simple Mechanisms, Velocity in Mechanisms, Turning Moment Diagrams and Flywheel, Steam Engine Valves and Reversing Gears, Torsional Vibrations, Computer Aided Analysis and Synthesis of Mechanisms and Automatic Control formed an important part and have been explained very well."

Key Features:

  • Every important equation is highlighted for the convenience of the student.
  • Close to 1400 examples, figures, tables and pictorial depictions aid to the concepts explained.
  • More than 800 chapter-end (objective and “Do-You-Know”) and exercise questions add to the practice of the students.
