This book focuses on the methods of dynamic analysis and synthesis of machines, comprising of cyclic action mechanisms, such as linkages, cams, steppers, etc. It presents the modern methods of oscillation analysis in machines, including cyclic action mechanisms (linkage, cam, stepper, etc.). Thus, it builds a bridge between the classic theory of oscillations and its practical application in the dynamic problems for cyclic machines.

The author take into account that, in the process of training engineers for jobs in engineering industries, producing cyclic machines, insufficient attention is paid, until now, to the problems of dynamic and especially to oscillations.

Editorial Reviews

"This book is for advanced practicing engineers and academics who are focused on the development of machinery and mechanisms. The text bridges the gap between mechanical vibration and mechanism synthesis and analysis. . The book opens with introductory chapters on rigid mechanisms, mechanism synthesis and laws of motion, and basic dynamical and oscillatory models as well as introduction to the analytical mechanics used to model the systems of interest." (Samuel Alberts, Noise Control Engineering Journal, Vol. 63 (4), July-August, 2015)
