Publisher Comments:

THOUSANDS OF DRAWINGS AND DESCRIPTIONS COVER INNOVATIONS IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

Fully revised throughout, this abundantly illustrated reference describes proven mechanisms and mechanical devices. Each illustration represents a design concept that can easily be recycled for use in new or modified mechanical, electromechanical, or mechatronic products. Tutorials on the basics of mechanisms and motion control systems introduce you to those subjects or act as a refresher.

Mechanisms and Mechanical Devices Sourcebook, Fifth Edition, contains new chapters on mechanisms for converting renewable energy into electrical power, 3D digital prototyping and simulation, and progress in MEMS 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 advances in rapid prototyping are also discussed. This practical guide will get you up to speed on many classical mechanical devices as well as the hot new topics in mechanical engineering.

Synopsis:

Featuring more than 2000 drawingsa goldmine of information for learning and innovating in mechanical design

Mechanisms and Mechanical Devices Sourcebook, Fifth Edition covers the past, present, and future of mechanisms and mechanical devices. Among the thousands of proven mechanisms illustrated and described are many suitable for recycling into new mechanical, electromechanical, or mechatronic products and systems. Robotics, elevator design, mechanical renewable energy sources, new concepts in auto design, rapid prototyping, MEMS, and nanotechnology get you up-to-speed on these cutting-edge technologies. Easy-to-read tutorial chapters on the basics of mechanisms and motion control introduce those subjects or serve as refresher of the information.

Mechanisms and Mechanical Devices Sourcebook, Fifth Edition covers:

  • New robotics from new manufacturing sources, including advances in military robots and drone aircraft
  • New elements of elevator design including safety, economy, and computer control, with coverage of high-rise buildings
  • New renewable power sources such as wind turbines and tide turbines that extract energy from tide changes
  • New concepts in automotive design including hybrid, hydrogen, and all-electric powered vehicles with diagrams
  • Carbon as an engineering material from nanotubes to high-strength plastics for aerospace applications
