Kinematics and Kinetics of Machinery
by John A. Dent, Arthur C. Harper
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons 1921
Number of pages: 410
It is hoped that this volume will fill a need in the curricula of our engineering schools, in that it gives systematic methods of determining velocities, accelerations, and inertia forces which can be applied to practically all mechanisms. These methods are in the main graphical; the complicated forms of the equations making analytical methods too cumbersome for practical use except in some of the simpler types of machines.
