Using the most up-to-date information, this book provides a practical approach to designing machine elements in the context of complete mechanical design.

Covering some of the primary machine elements such as belt drives, chain drives, gears, shafts, keys, couplings, seals, and rolling contact bearings. It also covers plain surface bearings, linear motion elements, fasteners, springs, machine frames, bolted connections, welded joints, electric motors, controls, clutches, and brakes.

This book is for any individual design professional for which a practical approach to mechanical design, based on sound engineering principles, is desired.


This new edition allows students to test their new skills and knowledge by designing a gear-type speed reducer. The project involves many of the concepts covered: conceptualization, decision analysis, and general layout; design and analysis of the components, tolerances and fits, applied to critical elements; and detail drawings and specifications of the housing and the major components of the reducer. Intended for undergraduate students with a background in algebra, trigonometry, and statistics taking a first course in machine design. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
