Kinematics and Dynamics of Mechanical Systems, 2nd Edition

Book Description

Kinematics and of Mechanical Systems: Implementation in MATLAB® and SimMechanics®, Second Edition combines the of mechanism kinematics, synthesis, and dynamics with real-world applications, and offers step-by-step instruction on the kinematic, static, and analyses and synthesis of equation systems. Written for students with no working knowledge of MATLAB and SimMechanics, the text provides understanding of static and mechanism analysis, and moves beyond conventional kinematic concepts―factoring in adaptive programming, 2D and visualization, and simulation, and equips readers with the ability to analyze and design mechanical systems. This latest edition presents all of the breadth and depth as the past edition, but with updated theoretical content and much improved of MATLAB and SimMechanics in the text examples.


  • Fully integrates MATLAB and SimMechanics with treatment of kinematics and machine dynamics
  • Revised to modify all 300 end-of-chapter problems, with new solutions available for instructors
  • Formulated static & dynamic load equations, and MATLAB files, to include gravitational acceleration
  • Adds coverage of gear tooth forces and torque equations for straight bevel gears
  • Links text examples directly with a library of MATLAB and SimMechanics files for all users
