Featuring more than 2000 drawingsa goldmine of information for learning and innovating in mechanical design Mechanisms and Mechanical Devices Sourcebook, Fifth Edition covers the past, present, and future of mechanisms and mechanical devices. Among the thousands of proven mechanisms illustrated and described are many suitable for recycling into new mechanical, electromechanical, or mechatronic products and systems. Robotics, elevator design, mechanical renewable energy sources, new concepts in auto design, rapid prototyping, MEMS, and nanotechnology get you up-to-speed on these cutting-edge technologies. Easy-to-read tutorial chapters on the basics of mechanisms and motion control introduce those subjects or serve as refresher of the information. Mechanisms and Mechanical Devices Sourcebook, Fifth Edition covers: New robotics from new manufacturing sources, including advances in military robots and drone aircraft New elements of elevator design including safety, economy, and computer control, with coverage of high-rise buildings New renewable power sources such as wind turbines and tide turbines that extract energy from tide changes New concepts in automotive design including hybrid, hydrogen, and all-electric powered vehicles with diagrams Carbon as an engineering material from nanotubes to high-strength plastics for aerospace applications In-depth details: Basics of Mechanisms; Motion Control Systems; Industrial Robots; Mobile Robots: Scientific, Military; Linkages: Drives & Mechanisms; Gears: Devices, Drives & Mechanisms; CAM, Geneva, and Ratchet Drives & Mechanisms; Clutches & Brakes; Latching, Fastening, & Clamping; Devices & Mechanisms; Chain & Belt Devices & Mechanisms; Spring & Screw Devices & Mechanisms; Shaft Couplings and Connections; Motion-Specific Devices, Mechanisms & Machines; Packaging, Conveying & Handling; Safety Mechanisms & Machines; Torque, Speed, Tension & Limit Control Systems; Instruments and Controls: Pneumatic, Hydraulic, Electric and Electronic; Computer-Aided Design Concepts; Rapid Prototyping; Directions in Mechanical Engineering
