507 Mechanical Movements: Mechanisms and Devices Dover Science Books

A detailed index provides easy reference to specific mechanisms. Inventors, tinkerers, and anyone with an interest in the history of invention and technology will find this volume a treasury of information and inspiration. Ranging from simple to intricately complex, the mechanisms offer a fascinating view of the variety of small components that constitute complex machinery.

Epicyclic trains, oblique rollers, trip hammers, and lazy-tongs are among the ingenious mechanisms defined and illustrated in this intriguing collection. Dover Publications. Spanning the first century of the industrial Revolution, pneumatics, steam engines, horologes, this 1868 compilation features simplified, presses, concise illustrations of the mechanisms used in hydraulics, and scores of other machines.

The movements of each of the 507 mechanisms are depicted in drawings on the left-hand page, and the facing page presents a brief description of the item's use and operation.

Basic Machines and How They Work

This revised edition of an extremely clear Navy training manual leaves nothing to be desired in its presentation. Although it was originally designed for use in U. S. Every concept is clearly defined, and discussions always build easily from elementary theory to specific applications familiar to anyone with the slightest interest in mechanics.

A chapter on the concept of work discusses the measurement of work, and pressure, gauges, force, and efficiency; this is followed by investigations of power, with explanations of the uses of scales, balances, friction, and barometers. The remaining chapters cover machine elements bearings and springs, couplings, basic mechanisms gear differential, auxiliary, the internal combustion engine and power trains including explanations of various transmission systems — synchromesh, cams, clutches, etc.

. Beginning with the simplest of machines — the lever — the text proceeds to discussions of the block and tackle pulleys and hoists, the screw, spiral, worm, wheel and axle, spur, and different types of gears simple, bevel, herringbone, the inclined plane and the wedge, etc. Thorough in its coverage of basic theory, from the lever and inclined plane to internal combustion engines and power trains, it requires nothing more than an understanding of the most elementary mathematics.

Naval training schools, this book can be used to great advantage as a basic text in mechanical engineering in standard technical schools, and it will be immensely valuable even to lay readers who desire a basic knowledge of mechanics. Important concepts, machine components, drawings, and techniques are clearly illustrated in more than 200 diagrams, and cross-sections that reveal inner workings — all of these help to clarify even further an already clear and well-organized presentation.
