Design of Machinery – Robert L. Norton – 2nd Edition


continues the tradition of this best-selling through its balanced coverage of , and outstanding use of realistic examples. Through its reader-friendly style of writing, clear exposition of topics, and emphasis on synthesis and , the text succeeds in conveying the art of as well as the use of modern tools needed for of the kinematics and of machinery.

Numerous two-color illustrations are used throughout to provide a visual to understanding mechanisms and machines. Analytical synthesis of linkages is covered, and cam design is given a more thorough, practical treatment than found in other texts.
