Mechanics & Mechanical Engineering


The content of the present publication on mechanical engineering is based on the proceedings of the IC-RIDME, standing for the International Conference on Recent Innovations & Developments in Mechanical Engineering, held back in 2018. It contains selected articles provided by the recognized experts in the field of mechanical engineering, covering numerous important areas.

In fact, we can say that the whole domain has been covered; the material is arranged in eight major sections, starting with the ones of fluid mechanics and the recent technological developments in the field of renewable energies. After that you will find interested articles on thermal engineering as well as the construction materials and manufacturing processes. The acoustics and vibration issues are covered within the following sections, together with the experimental aerodynamics.

The last two sections of the book address the mechatronics, robotics, and turbo-machinery considered so important in the XXI century. The articles included in the volume are reflecting the ongoing activities in the critically important mechanical engineering areas and as such can be used by both practicing specialists, and students willing to be up to date with all technological advances.

The present textbook is dealing with the subject of “Theory of Machines” but the author also included several sections addressing the topics that are not normally covered in the most of the usual books. The publication will be of practical use for the engineers and designers of the machines. The analytical treatment of brakes, for example, has been explained in detailed, with particular attention paid to the theoretical basics.

The contents of the publication includes virtually all important topics thus providing both students and professional engineers with all information they are expected to possess. The book opens with the chapters on the velocity, acceleration together with the associated analysis and diagrams, vectors, instantaneous centers. Then the author proceeds to the force and torque, work and energy, explaining each of them in detail.

After that, the main part of the publication comes where the author addresses such aspects as, for example, the dynamical similarity, and analysis of cams, friction, turning moments, flywheels, toothed gearing and so many other topics. There are numerous worked examples included for better understanding. The information is presented in a very easy-to-understand way so can be used even by the people with no deep knowledge of the subject.
