Kinematics and Dynamics of Mechanical Systems: Implementation in MATLAB and SimMechanics, 2nd edition

Kinematics and Dynamics of Mechanical Systems combines the fundamentals of mechanism kinematics, synthesis, statics, and dynamics with real-world applications, and offers step-by-step instruction on the kinematic, static, and dynamic analyses and synthesis of equation systems. Written for students with no working knowledge of MATLAB and Simscape Multibody, the text provides an understanding of static and dynamic mechanism analysis, moves beyond conventional kinematic concepts—factoring in adaptive programming, 2D and 3D visualization, and simulation—and equips readers with the ability to analyze and design mechanical systems. This latest edition presents all the breadth and depth as the past edition, but with updated theoretical content and much-improved integration of MATLAB and Simscape Multibody in the text examples.


  • Fully integrates MATLAB and Simscape Multibody with treatment of kinematics and machine dynamics
  • Revised to modify all 300 end-of-chapter problems, with new solutions available for instructors
  • Formulated static and dynamic load equations to include gravitational acceleration
  • Adds coverage of gear tooth forces and torque equations for straight bevel gears
