Synopses & Reviews
This work presents the most recent research in the mechanism and machine science field and its applications. The topics covered include: theoretical kinematics, computational kinematics, mechanism design, experimental mechanics, mechanics of robots, dynamics of machinery, dynamics of multi-body systems, control issues of mechanical systems, mechanisms for biomechanics, novel designs, mechanical transmissions, linkages and manipulators, micro-mechanisms, teaching methods, history of mechanism science and industrial and non-industrial applications.
This volume consists of the Proceedings of the 5th European Conference on Mechanisms Science (EUCOMES) that was held in Guimaraes, Portugal, from September 16 20, 2014. The EUCOMES is the main forum for the European community working in Mechanisms and Machine Science.
