Handbook Of Mechanics Of Machines


This book is intended mainly for use as an undergraduate text. It contains topics and material sufficient for a one-half-year course. It may also be useful to practicing engineers. Mechanics is a science that predicts the conditions of a system either at rest or in motion, when under the action of forces and moments. Within mechanics, the study can involve stationary systems at rest (statics) or systems in motion (dynamics). In statics, the motion of the parts in a system is zero (or insignificant), so the analysis is about the forces that act between the parts. In dynamics, the analysis is concerned with the forces that arise in a system of moving parts.


A machine is defined as an apparatus that transmits energy through its parts to perform desired tasks. This definition does not restrict the form of energy transmitted, nor does it restrict the size and rigidity of the parts. It therefore encompasses a vast array of mechanical and electrical devices, many of which have a profound effect on our lives.
