  • Nachgiebige Mechanismenby Lena Zentner

    De Gruyter Oldenbourg 2014; US$ 839.00

    Compliant mechanisms are able to transfer movements and forces. These systems can be fabricated monolithically and are miniaturizable, friction?free, require little maintenance and can also be used to create complex pathways. This book is devoted to models for compliant mechanisms or parts of mechanisms, demonstrating their application in gripper technology,... more...

  • Design of Special Planar Linkagesby Jing-Shan Zhao; Zhijing Feng; Ning Ma; Fulei Chu

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    Planar linkages play a very important role in mechanical engineering. As the simplest closed chain mechanisms, planar four-bar linkages are widely used in mechanical engineering, civil engineering and aerospace engineering.Design of Special Planar Linkages proposes a uniform design theory for planar four-bar linkages. The merit of the method proposed... more...
