The “Modern Mechanical Engineering: Science and Education” (MMESE) conference was initially organized by the Mechanical Engineering Department of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University in June 2011, in St. Petersburg, Russia. It was envisioned as a forum to bring together scientists, university professors, graduate students, and mechanical engineers, presenting new science, technology, and engineering ideas and achievements.
The idea of holding such a forum proved to be highly relevant. Moreover, both the location and timing of the conference were quite appealing. Late June is a wonderful and romantic season in St. Petersburg—one of the most beautiful cities, located on the Neva riverbanks and surrounded by charming greenbelts. The conference attracted many participants, working in various fields of engineering: design, mechanics, materials, etc. The success of the conference inspired the organizers to turn the conference into an annual event.
More than 70 papers were presented at the seventh conference MMESE-2018.
They covered topics ranging from the mechanics of machines, material engineering,
structural strength, and tribological behavior to transport technologies, machinery
quality, and innovations, in addition to dynamics of machines, walking mechanisms,
and computational methods. All presenters contributed greatly to the success
of the conference. However, for the purposes of this book, only 20 papers, authored
by research groups representing various universities and institutes, were selected for

Dynamics of cyclic machines. Series: Foundations of Engineering Mechanics. Springer Verlag, 2015, XIX, 390 p. 187 illus., 2 illus. in color.
Presents the modern methods of oscillation analysis in machines, including cyclic action mechanisms like linkage, cams, and steppers.Offers insight into problems of dynamic and especially to oscillations to engineers producing cyclic machines.Builds a bridge between the classic theory of oscillations and its practical application.
This book focuses on modern methods of oscillation analysis in machines, including cyclic action mechanisms (linkages, cams, steppers, etc.). It presents schematization techniques and mathematical descriptions of oscillating systems, taking into account the variability of the parameters and nonlinearities, engineering evaluations of dynamic errors, and oscillation suppression methods. The majority of the book is devoted to the development of new methods of dynamic analysis and synthesis for cyclic machines that form regular oscillatory systems with multiple duplicate modules.
There are also sections examining aspects of general engineering interest (nonlinear dissipative forces, systems with non-stationary constraints, impacts and pseudo-impacts in clearances, etc.)
The examples in the book are based on the widely used results of theoretical and experimental studies as well as engineering calculations carried out in relation to machines used in the textile, light, polygraphic and other industries. Particular attention is paid to dynamic forecasting and engineering recommendations.
Although it is intended for engineers and scientists who specialize in the field of machine dynamics, it will also be useful for graduate and postgraduate students.

Radzevich, S.P. Generation of Surfaces: Kinematic Geometry of Surface Machining, CRC Press, Boca Raton, 2014, 738 pages.
A commonly used practice in industry is the machining of sculptured part surfaces on a multi-axis numerical control (NC) machine. While this practice is vital, it is also a costly aspect of the surface generation process. After investing more than 40 years of research into the theory of part surface generation, the author of Generation of Surfaces: Kinematic Geometry of Surface Machining considers an approach that provides optimal machining while factoring in the lowest possible cost.
This second edition of the book (the first edition http://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9781420063400) presents the modern theory of part surface generation with a focus on kinematic geometry of part surface machining on a multi-axis (NC) machine, and introduces key methods for applying the DG/K-based approach to part surface generation. The DG/K approach is based on the results of research found in two main areas: differential geometry (DG) of surfaces, and kinematics (K) of rigid body in three-dimensional Euclidian space E3. It is an extremely powerful tool for solving a plurality of problems in mechanical/manufacturing engineering.
The text is presented in three parts: the basics, the fundamentals, and applications of part surface generation. The first part of the book provides an analytical description of part surfaces, details the principal elements of the theory of multi-parametric motion of a rigid body in E3 space, and defines applied coordinate systems. The second half introduces the theory of part surface generation, and includes an analytical description of contact geometry, while the final portion illustrates the potential development of highly effective part surface generation methods.
The author illustrates the most complex features of the book with examples, explains all of the results of analysis mathematically, and uses just one set of input parameters—the design parameters of the part surface to be machined.
The book considers practical applications for part surface machining and cutting tool design. Developed for use with computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided machining (CAM), this text is useful for anyone starting work on new software packages for sculptured part surface machining on a multi-axis NC machine.

Radzevich, S.P. Theory of Gearing: Kinematics, Geometry, and Synthesis, CRC Press, Boca Raton, Florida, 2012, 760 pages.
This book systematically presents and develops a scientific theory of gearing, specifically for those involved in gear design, analysis, and manufacture. The author begins with a few simple postulates that form the foundation of the theory of gearing. The postulated concepts are limited just to two entities, namely to (a) rotation vectors of the driving shaft and of the driven shaft, and to (b) torque on the driving shaft. The rest of the design parameters of an optimal gear pair are derived from the above mentioned input information.

G. and Radzevich, S.P., Precision Gear Shaving, Nova Science
Publishers, New York, 2010, 321 pages.
This book is dedicated to engineers those who work in the field
of gear design, gear production and gear application.
The following is understood by "engineers" in the wide
sense of the word, namely those involved in design, those who have
to study machining methods, those who have who are responsible for
overseeing gear production processes and gear tooling specialists.
In the following pages, some achievements by the authors along with
some of old notions have been brought together, that is things which
are already known to many readers but that in any case may be useful
to “newcomers.” There is also some other updated information which
may be useful to those who are not new to the trade. This book should
in part be informative while at the same time they should also form
a kind of pocket handbook.
S.P. Gear Cutting Tools: Fundamentals of Design and Computation,
CRC Press, Boca Raton, Florida, 2010, 786 p.
This book presents the DG/K-based method of surface generation,
a novel and practical mathematical method for designing gear cutting
tools with optimal parameters. The author, an industry leader for
the past 30 years, proposes a scientific classification for all
possible kinds of the gear machining meshes before discussing optimal
designs of gear cutting tools. This classification makes it possible
to consider all possible designs of gear cutting tools, including
those currently used in practice and those expected to be used in
the future. It also allows the author to develop scientific predictions
and optimal designs. In most cases, solutions appear in analytical
form and/or graphical form.

Geometry of Surface Machining / Stephen P. Radzevich. - CRC
Press, Boca Raton, 2007, 536p.
- Provides an overview of modern CAD/CAM systems for high precision
sculptured part surfaces
- Discusses theory and applications of surface machining
- Includes real-world examples, techniques, and end-of-chapter
- Summarizes the available information on surface generation with
a critical review of previous research
- Facilitates the design of optimal form cutting tools for the
machining or a given part surface on either a multi-axis NC machine
or one of conventional design
The principle of Occam's razor loosely translates to "the
simplest solution is often the best". The author of Kinematic
Geometry of Surface Machining utilizes this reductionist philosophy
to provide a solution to the highly inefficient process of machining
sculptured parts on multi-axis NC machines. He has developed a method
to quickly calculate the necessary parameters, greatly reduce trial
and error, and achieve efficient machining processes by using less
input information, and in turn saving a great deal of time.
This unique method will allow you to calculate optimal values for
all major parameters of sculptured surface machining on multi-axis
NC machines. It is much faster than conventional methods because
it requires only minimal input information for the development of
extremely efficient machining operations. Radzevich simply utilizes
the geometric information of a particular part surface to be machined
for developing optimal surface machining process rather than wasting
time dealing with unnecessary data.
This one-of-a-kind resource guides you through this cutting-edge
technique beginning with an analytical description of part surfaces,
the basics of differential geometry for sculptured surfaces, and
the principal elements of the multi-parametric motion on a rigid
body in E3 space theory. The book reveals the analytical method
for investigating cutting tool geometry and explains a set of described
conditions required for proper part surface generation. Next, the
author illustrates the selection of criterion for optimization and
describes the synthesis of optimal machining operations. He includes
examples of the DG/K based method of surface generation implementation.
Written by a leading expert in the field who holds over 150 patents,
Kinematic Geometry of Surface Machining invokes Occam's well-known
philosophical principle so that you can apply the simplest to achieve
optimal, time-saving surface machining processes. http://www.crcpress.com/

Dynamics of Mechanical Systems with Coulomb Friction / Le xuan Anh
.- Springer, 2003.- 269 p. ( Foundations of engineering mechanics
This book addresses the general theory of motion of mechanical systems
with Coulomb friction. In particular, the book focuses on the following
specific problems: derivation of the equations of motion, Painleve's
paradoxes, tangential impact and dynamic seizure, and frictional
self-excited oscillations. In addition to the theoretical results,
the book contains a detailed description of experiments that show
that, in general, the friction force at the instant of transition
to motion is determined by the rate of tangential load and does
not depend on the duration of the previous contact. These results
are used to develop the theory of frictional self-excited oscillations.
A number of industrially relevant mechanisms are considered, including
the Painleve-Klein scheme, epicyclic mechanisms, crank mechanisms,
gear transmission, the link mechanism of a planing machine, and
the slider of metal-cutting machine tools. The book is intended
for researchers, engineers and students in mechanical engineering.
Mechanics / A.I.Lurie.- Springer, 2002.- 864 p. ( Foundations

This is a translation of A.I. Lurie’s classical Russian textbook
on analytical mechanics. It offers a consummate exposition of the
subject of analytical mechanics through a deep analysis of its most
fundamental concepts. The book has served as a desk text for at
least two generations of researchers working in those fields where
the Soviet Union accomplished the greatest technological breakthrough
of the 20th century - a race into space. Those and other related
fields continue to be intensively explored since then, and the book
clearly demonstrates how the fundamental concepts of mechanics work
in the context of up-to-date engineering problems.

With progress in technology, the problem of protecting humane beings,
machines and technological processes from sources of vibration and
impact has become of utmost importance. Traditional 'classical'
methods of protection, based upon utilising elastik passive and
dissipative elements, turn out to be inefficient in many situations
and can not completely satisfy the complex and often contradictory
claims imposed on modern vibration protection systems which must
provide high performance at minimum dimensions. For these reasons,
active vibration protection systems of automatic control with independent
power sources are widely used nowadays.
