Classical Dynamics: A Contemporary Approach

Cambridge University Press
Free sample

Advances in the study of dynamical systems have revolutionized the way that classical mechanics is taught and understood. Classical Dynamics, first published in 1998, is a comprehensive textbook that provides a complete description of this fundamental branch of physics. The authors cover all the material that one would expect to find in a standard graduate course: Lagrangian and Hamiltonian dynamics, canonical transformations, the Hamilton-Jacobi equation, perturbation methods, and rigid bodies. They also deal with more advanced topics such as the relativistic Kepler problem, Liouville and Darboux theorems, and inverse and chaotic scattering. A key feature of the book is the early introduction of geometric (differential manifold) ideas, as well as detailed treatment of topics in nonlinear dynamics (such as the KAM theorem) and continuum dynamics (including solitons). The book contains many worked examples and over 200 homework exercises. It will be an ideal textbook for graduate students of physics, applied mathematics, theoretical chemistry, and engineering, as well as a useful reference for researchers in these fields. A solutions manual is available exclusively for instructors.

Fundamentals of Machine Elements, Third Edition offers an in-depth understanding of both the theory and application of machine elements. Design synthesis is carefully balanced with design analysis, an approach developed through the use of case studies, worked examples, and chapter problems that address all levels of learning taxonomies. Machine design is also linked to manufacturing processes, an element missing in many textbooks.

The third edition signifies a major revision from the second edition. The contents have been greatly expanded and organized to benefit students of all levels in design synthesis and analysis approaches.

What’s New in This Edition:

Balances synthesis and analysis with strong coverage of modern design theory

Links coverage of mechanics and materials directly to earlier courses, with expansion to advanced topics in a straightforward manner

Aids students of all levels, and includes tie-in to engineering practice through the use of case studies that highlight practical uses of machine elements

Contains questions, qualitative problems, quantitative problems, and synthesis, design, and projects to address all levels of learning taxonomies

Includes a solutions manual, book website, and classroom presentations in full color, as well as an innovative "tear sheet" manual that allows instructors to present example problems in lectures in a time-saving manner

Expands contents considerably, Topics: the importance of the heat affected zone in welding; design synthesis of spur, bevel, and worm gears; selection of multiple types of rolling element bearings (including deep groove, angular contact, toroidal, needle, and cylindrical and tapered roller) using a standard unified approach; consideration of advanced welding approaches such as brazing, friction welding and spot welding; expansion of fatigue coverage including the use of the staircase method to obtain endurance limit; and design of couplings, snap rings, wave and gas springs, and hydrostatic bearings

Provides case studies that demonstrate the real-world application of machine elements. For example, the use of rolling element bearings in windmills, powder metal gears, welds in blisks, and roller coaster brake designs are all new case studies in this edition that represent modern applications of these machine elements.

Fundamentals of Machine Elements, Third Edition can be used as a reference by practicing engineers or as a textbook for a third- or fourth-year engineering course/module. It is intended for students who have studied basic engineering sciences, including physics, engineering mechanics, and materials and manufacturing processes.
