This hallmark text on Machine Design almost covers the entire syllabus of all Indian Universities and Polytechnics. Each chapter is written in a simple, crisp and logical way, explaining the theoretical considerations in design of machine elements. The language is lucid and easy to understand yet precisely scientific. It covers the topics in entirety meaning thereby that for a particular topic, all the facets associated with it have been dealt in a very methodical and logical manner.
Computer aided design (CAD) emerged in the 1960s out of the growing acceptance of the use of the computer as a design tool for complex systems. As computers have become faster and less expensive while handling an increasing amount of information, their use in machine design has spread from large industrial needs to the small designer.
Machine Design is a text on the design of machine elements for the engineering undergraduates of mechanical/production/industrial disciplines. The book provides a comprehensive survey of machine elements and their analytical design methods. Besides explaining the fundamentals of the tools and techniques necessary to facilitate design calculations, the text includes extensive data on various aspects of machine elements, manufacturing considerations and materials. The extensive pedagogical features make the text student friendly and provide pointers for fast recapitulation.
This revised text covers the design of basic machine components with an emphasis on practical problems. Supplementary topics are presented to provide the student with the concept of total design and professional practice.
The definitive machine design handbook for mechanical engineers, product designers, project engineers, design engineers, and manufacturing engineers covers every aspect of machine construction and operation. The 3rd edition of the Standard Handbook of Machine Design will be redesigned to meet the challenges of a new mechanical engineering age. In addition to adding chapters on structural plastics and adhesives, which are replacing the old nuts bolts and fasteners in design, the author will also update and streamline the remaining chapters.
