Design of Machinery – Robert L. Norton – 3rd Edition


Robert Norton’s “Design of Machinery, 3/e” continues the tradition of this bestselling book by emphasizing the design aspects of mechanisms and providing numerous industry examples and illustrations for readers. Norton provides a solid conceptual foundation for the kinematics and dynamics of machinery, presented in the context of what a design engineer needs to work with.

The new 3/e has revised and expanded chapter problem set – 231 new problems have been added. 88 Project Assignments are also included to give readers an in-depth look at mechanism design and analysis procedures in a realistic format. Coverage of compliant mechanisms and MEMS has been added in Chapter 2; a section entitled “Some Useful Mechanisms” is now in Chapter 3; treatment of cams in Chapters 8 has been condensed and modernized. Information on transmissions and engine dynamics has been enhanced and expanded as well.

The third edition comes with a bound-in Student Resources CD-ROM, with Norton’s own student-version programs, an extensive group of Working Model simulations (by Sid Wang, North Carolina A&T University), additional Working Model examples, and the MSC Working Model 2-D program itself (demonstration version). A new Book Website includes additional instructor and student resources. Detailed solutions to all chapter problems and project assignments, are available to instructors on the website, under password protection.
