From one of the authors of The Unwritten Laws of Engineering and The Unwritten Laws of Business, this concise and readable book is an excellent primer or refresher for any professional interested in the basic principles and practices of good mechanical design. In this handy and unique volume the author uses his own experience, along with input from other expert designers, to explicitly state design principles and practices. Readers will not have to discover these principles on their own and will be able to apply these fundamental concepts throughout their designs. This book provides a comprehensive and wide-ranging introduction to the fundamental principles of mechanical engineering in a distinct and clear manner. The book is intended for a core introductory course in the area of foundations and applications of mechanical engineering, prescribed for the first-year students of all disciplines of engineering.
The book develops an intuitive understanding of the basic principles of thermodynamics as well as of the principles governing the conversion of heat into energy. Numerous illustrative examples are provided to fortify these concepts throughout. The book gives the students a feel for how thermodynamics is applied in engineering practice in the areas of heat engines, steam boilers, internal combustion engines, refrigeration and air conditioning, and to devices such as turbines, pumps and compressors. The book also provides a basic understanding of mechanical design, illustrating the principles through a discussion of devices designed for the transmission of motion and power such as couplings, clutches and brakes. No book on basic mechanical engineering is complete without an introduction to materials science.
The text covers the treatment of the common engineering materials, highlighting their properties and applications. Finally, the role of lubrication and lubricants in reducing the wear and tear of parts in mechanical systems, is lucidly explained in the concluding chapter. The text features several fully worked-out examples, a fairly large number of numerical problems with answers, end-of-chapter review questions and multiple choice questions, which all enhance the value of the text to the students. Besides the students studying for an engineering degree, this book is also suitable for study by the students of AMIE and the students of diploma level courses. Analyze and Solve Real-World Machine Design Problems Using SI Units Mechanical Design of Machine Components, Second Edition: SI Version strikes a balance between method and theory, and fills a void in the world of design. Relevant to mechanical and related engineering curricula, the book is useful in college classes, and also serves as a reference for practicing engineers. This book combines the needed engineering mechanics concepts, analysis of various machine elements, design procedures, and the application of numerical and computational tools.
It demonstrates the means by which loads are resisted in mechanical components, solves all examples and problems within the book using SI units, and helps readers gain valuable insight into the mechanics and design methods of machine components. The author presents structured, worked examples and problem sets that showcase analysis and design techniques, includes case studies that present different aspects of the same design or analysis problem, and links together a variety of topics in successive chapters. SI units are used exclusively in examples and problems, while some selected tables also show U. This book also presumes knowledge of the mechanics of materials and material properties. New in the Second Edition: Presents a study of two entire real-life machines Includes Finite Element Analysis coverage supported by examples and case studies Provides MATLAB solutions of many problem samples and case studies included on the book’s website Offers access to additional information on selected topics that includes website addresses and open-ended web-based problems Class-tested and divided into three sections, this comprehensive book first focuses on the fundamentals and covers the basics of loading, stress, strain, materials, deflection, stiffness, and stability. This includes basic concepts in design and analysis, as well as definitions related to properties of engineering materials.
Also discussed are detailed equilibrium and energy methods of analysis for determining stresses and deformations in variously loaded members. The second section deals with fracture mechanics, failure criteria, fatigue phenomena, and surface damage of components. The final section is dedicated to machine component design, briefly covering entire machines. The fundamentals are applied to specific elements such as shafts, bearings, gears, belts, chains, clutches, brakes, and springs.
The concepts, procedures, data, and analysis techniques needed to design and integrate machine elements into mechanical devices and systems. For over three decades students and practicing engineers have used Machine Elements in Mechanical Design to learn about the principles and practices of mechanical design. They have either continued to use the text in their careers, or have newly discovered it as an invaluable resource in their work. With an emphasis on applying the technology of various machine elements while considering those elements in the context of the larger machine, this text references a broad array of available resources, from industrial sources to professional organizations.
It promotes practical decision making in design and provides excellent preparation for moving from an academic environment to a professional position with strong, long-term growth potential. Continuing the book’s emphasis on proven approaches and the use of readily available materials, and its focus on practical, safe, and efficient design, this edition includes new content and adjustments contributed by the two new coauthors and features stronger technical content in stress analysis, a wider set of technical topics, and beautiful enhancements to the visual attractiveness of the book throughout numerous new full-color graphic illustrations. Appreciated for its readability, while recognized for its technical strength and comprehensive coverage of the material, Machine Elements in Mechanical Design is the ideal guide to the skills and knowledge needed for success in this field. This book introduces the subject of total design, and introduces the design and selection of various common mechanical engineering components and machine elements. These provide “building blocks”, with which the engineer can practice his or her art. Within this framework the book concentrates on developing detailed mechanical design skills in the areas of bearings, shafts, gears, seals, belt and chain drives, clutches and brakes, springs and fasteners. Where standard components are available from manufacturers, the steps necessary for their specification and selection are developed.
The framework used within the text has been to provide descriptive and illustrative information to introduce principles and individual components and to expose the reader to the detailed methods and calculations necessary to specify and design or select a component. To provide the reader with sufficient information to develop the necessary skills to repeat calculations and selection processes, detailed examples and worked solutions are supplied throughout the text. Level 1 and 2 undergraduate text. Pre-requisite skills include some year one undergraduate mathematics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer, principles of materials, statics and dynamics. However, as the subjects are introduced in a descriptive and illustrative format and as full worked solutions are provided, it is possible for readers without this formal level of education to benefit from this book. The text is specifically aimed at automotive and mechanical engineering degree programmes and would be of value for modules in design, mechanical engineering design, design and manufacture, design studies, automotive power-train and transmission and tribology, as well as modules and project work incorporating a design element requiring knowledge about any of the content described. The aims and objectives described are achieved by a short introductory chapters on total design, mechanical engineering and machine elements followed by ten chapters on machine elements covering: bearings, shafts, gears, seals, chain and belt drives, clutches and brakes, springs, fasteners and miscellaneous mechanisms.
Chapters 14 and 15 introduce casings and enclosures and sensors and actuators, key features of most forms of mechanical technology. The subject of tolerancing from a component to a process level is introduced in Chapter 16. The last chapter serves to present an integrated design using the detailed design aspects covered within the book. The first edition of this text introduced a variety of machine elements as building blocks with which design of mechanical devices can be undertaken. The approach adopted of introducing and explaining the aspects of technology by means of text, photographs, diagrams and step-by-step procedures has been maintained. A number of important machine elements have been included in the new edition, fasteners, springs, sensors and actuators.
Chapters on total design, the scope of mechanical engineering and machine elements have been completely revised and updated. New chapters are included on casings and enclosures and miscellaneous mechanisms and the final chapter has been rewritten to provide an integrated approach. Multiple worked examples and completed solutions are included. This book deals with an interface between mechanical engineering and biology. Available for the first time in paperback, it reviews biological structural materials and systems and their mechanically important features and demonstrates that function at any particular level of biological integration is permitted and controlled by structure at lower levels of integration. Five chapters discuss the properties of materials in general and those of biomaterials in particular.
