  • Faydor L. Litvin

Unfortunately, this item is not available in your country.


Written by THE internationally recognized expert in gears and the developer of the modern theory of gearing, this is the definitive reference on gearing. It covers the modern theory of gearing, geometry, design, and computerized simulation of meshing and contact for almost all types of gears. KEY TOPICS: Covers the modern theory of gearing and geometry for the design and manufacture of all types of gear drives. Considers the new aspects of gearing required for redirection of machine vibration and CNC (computer controlled automated manufacturing) equipment. MARKETS: A power tool for researchers, graduate students, designers, and manufacturers of gears.
