Mechanical Engineering Design - 7th edition

Mechanical Engineering Design (ISBN10: 0072921935; ISBN13: 9780072921939)
ISBN13: 978-0072921939
ISBN10: 0072921935

This edition has also been released as:
ISBN13: 978-0072520361
ISBN10: 0072520361

Summary: The seventh edition of Mechanical Engineering Design marks a return to the basic approaches that have made this book the standard in machine design for over 40 years. At the same time it has been significantly updated and modernized for today's engineering students and professional engineers.
Working from extensive market research and reviews of the 6th edition, the new 7th edition features reduced coverage of uncertainty and statistical methods. Statistics is n
ow treated (in chapter 2) as one of several methods available to design engineers, and statistical applications are no longer integrated throughout the text, examples and problem sets.

Other major changes include updated coverage of the design process, streamlined coverage of statistics, a more practical overview of materials and materials selection (moved to chapter 3), revised coverage of failure and fatigue, and review of basic strength of materials topics to make a clearer link with prerequisite courses.

Overall coverage of basic concepts has been made more clear and concise, with some advanced topics deleted, so that readers can easily navigate key topics. Problem sets have been improved, with new problems added to help students progressively work through them.

The book has an Online Learning Center with several powerful components: MATLAB for Machine Design (featuring highly visual MATLAB simulations and accompanying source code); the "FEPC" finite element program, with accompanying Finite Element Primer and FEM Tutorials; interactive FE Exam questions for Machine Design; and Machine Design Tutorials for study of key concepts from Parts I and II of the text. Complete Problem Solutions and PowerPoint slides of book illustrations are available for instructors, under password protection. A printed Instructor's Solutions Manual is also available, with detailed solutions to all chapter problems.

New to This Edition :
  • Mainstream coverage of Machine Design topics, with moderate coverage (only) of statistical methods.
  • Revised and expanded problem sets with each chapter.
  • Improved engineering mechanics coverage, treatment of failure, fracture and fatigue in Part II of the text.
  • New Online Learning Center will offer a wealth of learning resources.
  • Practical coverage of engineering materials, now moved up to Part I of the text.
  • More accessible writing style evident throughout the book.
  • Extensive checking has been done to guarantee accuracy of the text, examples, problems and solutions.

Features :
  • Coverage in the 7/e is much more concise, and focused on major topics.
  • Authoritative coverage of the design considerations for major machine elements (i.e., gears, brakes, clutches).
