This book meets the requirements of undergraduate and postgraduate students pursuing courses in mechanical, production, electrical, metallurgical and aeronautical engineering. This self-contained text strikes a fine balance between conceptual clarity and practice problems, and focuses both on conventional graphical methods and emerging analytical approach in the treatment of subject matter. In keeping with technological advancement, the text gives detailed discussion on relatively recent areas of research such as function generation, path generation and mechanism synthesis using coupler curve, and number synthesis of kinematic chains. The text is fortified with fairly large number of solved examples and practice problems to further enhance the understanding of the otherwise complex concepts. Besides engineering students, those preparing for competitive examinations such as GATE and Indian Engineering Services (IES) will also find this book ideal for reference. KEY FEATURES  Exhaustive treatment given to topics including gear drive and cam follower combination, analytical method of motion and conversion phenomenon.  Simplified explanation of complex subject matter.  Examples and exercises for clearer understanding of the concepts.

This book provides a detailed study of technical drawing and machine design to acquaint students with the design, drafting, manufacture, assembly of machines and their components. The book explains the principles and methodology of converting three-dimensional engineering objects into orthographic views drawn on two-dimensional planes. It describes various types of sectional views which are adopted in machine drawing as well as simple machine components such as keys, cotters, threaded fasteners, pipe joints, welded joints, and riveted joints. The book also illustrates the principles of limits, fits and tolerances and discusses geometrical tolerances and surface textures with the help of worked-out examples. Besides, it describes assembly methods and drafting of power transmission units and various mechanical machine parts of machine tools, jigs and fixtures, engines, valves, etc. Finally, the text introduces computer aided drafting (CAD) to give students a good start on professional drawing procedure using computer. KEY FEATURES : Follows the International Standard Organization (ISO) code of practice for drawing. Includes a large number of dimensioned illustrations and worked-out examples to explain the design and drafting process of various machines and their components. Contains chapter-end exercises to help students develop their design and drawing skills. This book is designed for degree and diploma students of mechanical, production, automobile, industrial and chemical engineering. It is also useful for mechanical draftsmen and designers.

There has been a movement over the years to make machines intelligent. With the advent of modern technology, AI has become the core part of day-to-day life. But it is accentuated to have a book that keeps abreast of all the state-of-the-art concepts (pertaining to AI) in simplified, explicit and elegant way, expounding on ample examples so that the beginners are able to comprehend the subject with ease. The book on Artificial Intelligence, dexterously divided into 21 chapters, fully satisfies all these pressing needs. It is intended to put each and every concept related to intelligent system in front of the readers in the most simplified way so that while understanding the basic concepts, they will develop thought process that can contribute to the building of advanced intelligent systems. Various cardinal landmarks pertaining to the subject such as problem solving, search techniques, intelligent agents, constraint satisfaction problems, knowledge representation, planning, machine learning, natural language processing, pattern recognition, game playing, hybrid and fuzzy systems, neural network-based learning and future work and trends in AI are now under the single umbrella of this book, thereby showing a nice blend of theoretical and practical aspects. With all the latest information incorporated and several pedagogical attributes included, this textbook is an invaluable learning tool for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of computer science and engineering, and information technology. KEY FEATURES • Highlights a clear and concise presentation through adequate study material • Follows a systematic approach to explicate fundamentals as well as recent advances in the area • Presents ample relevant problems in the form of multiple choice questions, concept review questions, critical thinking exercise and project work • Incorporates various case studies for major topics as well as numerous industrial examples
