  • Robot Mechanismsby Jadran Lenarcic; Tadej Bajd; Michael M. Stani?ic

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 76.20

    This comprehensive introduction to robot mechanisms balances theoretical and practical aspects in the development and application of robot mechanisms, and surveys current achievements and trends. Includes coverage of industrial manipulators and humanoid arms. more...

  • Gears and Gear Drivesby Damir T. Jelaska

    Wiley 2012; US$ 159.95 US$ 138.62

    Understanding how gears are formed and how they interact or ‘mesh’ with each other is essential when designing equipment that uses gears or gear trains. The way in which gear teeth are formed and how they mesh is determined by their geometry and kinematics, which is the topic of this book.  Gears and Gear Drives provides the reader... more...

  • Handbook of Compliant Mechanismsby Larry L. Howell; Spencer P. Magleby; Brian M. Olsen

    Wiley 2013; US$ 133.00 US$ 115.27

  • Direct Gear Designby Alexander L. Kapelevich

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 132.95

    Over the last several decades, gearing development has focused on improvements in materials, manufacturing technology and tooling, thermal treatment, and coatings and lubricants. In contrast, gear design methods have remained frozen in time, as the vast majority of gears are designed with standard tooth proportions. This over-standardization significantly... more...

  • Robot Intelligence Technology and Applications 2012by Jong-Hwan Kim; Eric T Matson; Hyun Myung; Peter Xu

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 271.09

    This book classifies robot intelligence in six broad categories: cognitive, social, behavioral, ambient, collective and genetic intelligence, based on the different aspects of awareness and the ability to act deliberately as a result of such awareness. more...

  • Mechanics of Machineryby Mahmoud A. Mostafa

    CRC Press 2012; US$ 136.95

    Mechanics of Machinery describes the analysis of machines, covering both the graphical and analytical methods for examining the kinematics and dynamics of mechanisms with low and high pairs. This text, developed and updated from a version published in 1973, includes analytical analysis for all topics discussed, allowing for the use of math software... more...

  • Mechanism Designby Kevin Russell; Qiong Shen; Raj S. Sodhi

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 139.95

    In the field of mechanism design, kinematic synthesis is a creative means to produce mechanism solutions. Combined with the emergence of powerful personal computers, mathematical analysis software and the development of quantitative methods for kinematic synthesis, there is an endless variety of possible mechanism solutions that users are free to... more...

  • Modern Gear Productionby H J Watson

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Modern Gear Production focuses on the processes and methods in gear making. The book first gives information on the history of gear making and types of gears. Topics such as the classification of gears based on the disposition of their shafts; shafts lying in the same plane with axes intersecting; and shafts lying in parallel planes but with axes... more...

  • Probabilistic Approach to Mechanismsby B.Z. Sandler

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    This book discusses the application of probabilistics to the investigation of mechanical systems. The book shows, for example, how random function theory can be applied directly to the investigation of random processes in the deflection of cam profiles, pitch or gear teeth, pressure in pipes, etc. The author also deals with some other technical applications... more...
