This book is intended as a supplement for undergraduate courses in kinematics or dynamics of mechanisms. The emphasis of the text is integrating the computational power of MATLAB and Simulink into the analysis and design of mechanisms. It provides detailed instruction and examples showing how to use MATLAB and Simulink to develop powerful and accurate computer simulations of constrained mechanical systems. A
is included in the appendix, covering topics ranging from building a simple model to using MATLAB functions in Simulink.
