This book is a collection of programs to assist the senior engineer with routine calculations in mechanical design. There are several programs-written in BASIC- for each topic. A minimum of 16K bytes of R/W memory is required for most processors to utilize the programs. The computations are performed in single-precision arithmetic.

The topics are arranged in five parts:

  • Dynamics - acceleration and kinetic energy
  • Vibrations - free and forced, and critical shaft speed
  • Linkages - four-bar and slider crank systems
  • Cams - harmonic cam designs and cam function generators
  • Gears - spur, bevel, and worm
