The first edition of Kinematic Geometry of Gearing proposed a new system of curvilinear coordinates specifically for describing general gear forms. This system of coordinates and new mathematical relations on the kinematics of ruled surfaces in mesh were new and believed to be invaluable to the gearing world and the kinematics community. This development provided a completely different perspective and approach to the state-of-the-art gearing. Since the publication of the first edition in 1995, author David Dooner has continued the development of this dynamic new approach to the design, manufacture and evaluation of gears.
Progressing from the fundamentals of geometry to construction of gear geometry and application, Kinematic Geometry of Gearing Second Edition presents a generalized approach for the integrated design and manufacture of gear pairs, cams and all other types of toothed/motion/force transmission mechanisms using computer implementation based on algebraic geometry.
This new second edition has been extensively revised and updated with new and original material.
Key features include:
Kinematic Geometry of Gearing Second Edition forms an indispensable tool of the trade for industry engineers, academics and researchers working in kinematics and mechanics. It is also an invaluable reference for graduate and postgraduate students in mechanical engineering.
