Book Description

Mechanisms and robots have been and continue to be essential components of mechanical systems.

Modern technical advancements in areas such as robotics, multi-body systems, spacecraft, control, and design of complex mechanical devices and mechanisms in industry require the knowledge to solve advanced concepts in dynamics. Mechanisms and Robots Analysis with MATLAB provides a thorough, rigorous presentation of kinematics and dynamics. The book uses MATLAB as a tool to solve problems from the field of mechanisms and robots.

The book discusses the tools for formulating the mathematical equations, and also the methods of solving them using a modern computing tool like MATLAB. An emphasis is placed on basic concepts, derivations, and interpretations of the general principles.

Mechanisms and Robots Analysis with MATLAB is of great benefit to senior undergraduate and graduate students interested in the classical principles of mechanisms and robotics systems. Each chapter introduction is followed by a careful step-by-step presentation, and sample problems are provided at the end of every chapter. Mechanisms and Robots Analysis with MATLAB includes a large number of problems that are being solved using Matlab. The programs are available on a CD accompanying this book.
