Objective Type Questions
The popularity of the fourth edition of the textbook of Theory of Machines amongst the students and the teachers of the various Universities in the country, has prompted the bringing out of the fifth edition of the book so soon. The fifth edition has been thoroughly revised and brought uptodate.
In the fifth edition, the three chapters entitled Computer Aided Analysis, Synthesis of Mechanism and Gyroscopic Couple and its effects have been added. The first two chapters have been written by Dr. J.S. Brar (Professor and Head of Dept. of Mechanical Engg., Delhi College of Engg., Delhi110042) and the third chapter by Dr. J.S. Brar and Dr. R.K. Bansal in a simple and easytofollow language so that even an average student can grasp the subject by selfstudy. The computer programmes for the chapter "Computer Aided Analysis" was initially in FORTRAN. Now these programmes have also been written in C++ by Puneet Bansal in this edition. Many good examples have been solved using C++ programme. The input and output data for all these examples have been included in this edition. With these additions, it is hoped that the book will be quite useful for the students of various Engineering Institutions.
The objective type multiplechoice questions are often asked in various competitive examinations. Hence a large number of objective type questions with answers have been added in the end of the book.
We express our sincere thanks to our colleagues, friends, students and the teachers of different Indian Universities for their valuable suggestions and recommending the book to their students.
Suggestions for the improvement of this book are most welcome and would be incorporated in the next edition with a view to make the book more useful.
