Mechanisms and Mechanical Devices Sourcebook


Preference :

This is the fourth edition of Mechanisms and Mechanical Devices Sourcebook, a well-illustrated reference book containing a wide range of information on both classical and modern mechanisms and mechanical devices. This edition contains three new chapters: one on basic mechanisms; the second on mobile robots; and the third on new directions in mechanical engineering. The chapter on basic mechanisms provides an overview of the physical principles of mechanics; the chapter on mobile robots examines existing scientific and military mobile robots and the scientific and engineering research in advanced robotics; the chapter on new directions in mechanical engineering reviews the present status and future prospects for microtechnology, highlighting progress in and acceptance of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). Also included in the chapter are articles on nanotechnology, focused on the role mechanical engineers are playing in this burgeoning science. The field of nanotechnology now involves several branches of engineering as well as the physical, chemical, biological, and medical sciences. A previous section on rapid prototyping has been updated and upgraded as a separate chapter.
