Machine Design Elements and Assemblies (Hardcover)

Not available


The academic course of Machine Design Elements and Assemblies (a.k.a. "Machine Design," "Mechanical Engineering Design," etc.) is based on the fundamentals of several different core disciplines, and should prepare students to meet challenges associated with solving real-life mechanical engineering design problems commonly found in industry.

Other works focus primarily on verifying calculations of existing machine elements in isolation, while this textbook goes beyond and includes the design calculations necessary for determining the specifications of elements for new assemblies, and accounting for the interaction between them.

Machine Design Elements and Assemblies addresses the design considerations associated with the functionality of a full assembly. Most chapters end with a design project that gets progressively more complex.

Numerous reviews of prerequisite materials are purposely not included in this title, resulting in a more concise, more practical, and far less expensive product for students, engineers, and professors.

Rounding out this incredible package are 120 problems and answers that can be assigned as homework. And nearly 400 additional problems are available on the book's affiliated website,
