Industries that use machines in their day-to-day operations include power, automobile, steel, and chemical plants sectors, to mention just a few. As these industries' services evolve, their machines must also evolve. To design these machines, you must understand both their performance requirements and the physical concepts governing their motion. Emphasizing the industrial relevance of the subject matter, Mechanics of Machines provides the fundamental information students need to decide on the criteria for designing new machines and for analyzing the root cause of problems arising out of malfunctioning of existing equipment.
