About this book


This monograph develops a unified methodology for dynamic analysis and minimization of the inertia-induced forces occurring in high speed multiloop planar as well as spatial mechanisms based on the multibody system modeling approach. Dynamic analysis is prerequisite for the dynamic balancing of mechanisms. The balancing of mechanisms is one of the crucial steps in design of high speed machinery and is a difficult one due to trade-off amongst various dynamic quantities, e.g., shaking force, shaking moment, bearing reactions, and driving torques/forces. Hence, it is essentially an optimization problem where various dynamic quantities are computed repeatedly.

From the reviews:

"This is a monograph describing applications of multibody dynamic analysis methods with specific physical systems. The focus is upon the development of dynamics formulations convenient for machine design. … The book is well-written with high-quality graphics and printing. … The book will thus probably be of greatest interest and use to engineers and researchers who are wanting to transfer multibody dynamics theories into design application." (Roland L. Huston, Zentrablatt MATH, Vol. 1153, 2009)
