Description

Spatial Mechanisms: Analysis and Synthesis comprises the study of the three-dimensional relative motion between the components of a machine. Each chapter in this book presents a concise, but thorough, fundamental statement of the theory, principles, and methods. It then follows this with a selected number of worked examples. Numerous references provided at the end of chapters and the bibliography at the end of the book serve as helpful sources for further study.
