Theory of Machines by S S Rattan

Book: Theory of Machines


S S Rattan

Professor of Mechanical Engineering

National Institute of Technology, Kurukshetra

Publication: Tata McGraw-Hill

Note: This single book Theory of Machines covers the topic of subjects Kinematics of machines (KOM) and Dynamics of Machines (DOM). It means you do not have to buy to separate books for KOM and DOM, this single book will do the job.

Bonus: In this book a chapter named as Vibrations is included, which is almost sufficient for the subject Mechanical Vibrations too.
