Summary: Typically for third year college courses in Machine Design, Design of Machine Elements, and Mechanical Design in Engineering and Engineering Technology programs.
This book provides a practical approach to designing machine elements in the context of complete mechanical design. This edition retains many features of the previous edition--exceptional organization, readability, practical approach, sound technical content, extensive appendix, design procedures,...show more example problems, use of computer aids, and use of many examples from commercially available products and systems--yet, has been extensively updated to include new photographs; new design data for some elements; new or revised standards; new end-of-chapter references; listing of internet sites; and some completely new elements.
NEW - The MDESIGN computer aided mechanical design software CD-ROM is included in the book.
Students will be able to quickly perform many more design iterations than with hand calculations.
Special icons are placed in the margins where use of the software is pertinent--topics include belts, chains, gears, shafts, keys, bearings, power screws, springs, and others.
NEW - Refined discussion of the mechanical design process in Chapter 1--Includes several new photographs and includes Internet sites for general mechanical design that are applicable to many later chapters.
NEW - Developed coverage of Materials in Mechanical Design, Chapter 2--Includes added material on creep, austempered ductile iron (ADI), toughness, impact energy, and special considerations for selecting plastics.
Includes an entirely new section on Materials Selection , highlighting its importance in design.
NEW - Additional material covered in Stress and Deformation Analysis, Chapter 3--Includes a review of force analysis, and refinement of the concepts of stress elements, combined normal stresses, and beams with concentrated bending moments.
NEW - Chapter 5, Designing for Different Types of Loading, is extensively updated and refined--Includes endurance strength, design philosophy, design factors, predictions of failure, an overview of statistical approaches to design, finite life, and damage accumulation.
The recommended approach to fatigue design has been changed from the Soderberg criterion to the Goodman method.
NEW - Ch. 16 all new section: Tribology: Friction, Lubrication, and Wear --Includes more data on pV factors for boundary lubricated bearings.
End of chapter references and Internet sites throughout the book--Provide links to industrial sources of information and product data.
Assist students in accessing additional information about concepts presented in this book and to find data for commercially available products that can be applied to designs.
The inclusion of computer spreadsheets in most chapters.
Illustrate how students and designers can organize their own complex design procedures for computer-aided solutions.
The Big Picture, You are the Designer, and Objectives retained and refined in each chapter.
Chapter-opening "The Big Picture" sections--consider real-life examples of products and systems that pertain to the chapter principles. Encourages students to think of their own experiences so they can relate to the applications and importance of the material in each chapter.
"You are the Designer" feature presents a specific design assignment that is relevant to the material in the chapter. This feature focuses the student's thinking from "The Big Picture" to the details of the chapter.
Help students draw on their own experiences and to appreciate what they will acquire from the chapter.
