Book Description

Robert L. Norton's fifth edition of DESIGN OF MACHINERY continues the tradition of this best-selling book through its balanced coverage of analysis and design and outstanding use of realistic engineering examples. Through its reader-friendly style of writing, clear exposition of complex topics, and emphasis on synthesis and design, the text succeeds in conveying the art of design as well as the use of modern tools needed for analysis of the kinematics and dynamics of machinery. Topics are explained verbally and visually, often through the use of software, to enhance student understanding.

Accompanying each copy of the book is an updated DVD that includes the LINKAGES software package, updated DYNACAM, as well as ENGINE and MATRIX programs. A six-month license for the Working Model program is available for a nominal charge from the website. Additionally, the DVD contains many videos and classroom resources to help instructors and students.

1One of the worst Engineering books I have used
By Pikey
I am currently a senior working toward me ME degree. This is the worst book that I have had to use. The author references diagrams from chapter 1 when you are in chapter 7, so you are constantly flipping pages back and forth. Not that big of a deal, right? That is what I thought until I actually had to do it. It stinks. There are typos EVERYWHERE in this book. Not to mention that almost 1/4 of the diagrams have at least one mislabeled "element", whether it be a position vector or an incorrectly marked "Omega". Having "omega 2" located on 3 different points of a link system is not correct. They should have been labeled "omega 2", "omega 3"....... I know that the author has been writing text books for over 20 years. It is sad when an engineering student that is trying to grasp kinematic concepts is constantly finding inconsistency in the book.
