Incorporating Chinese, European, and International standards and units of measurement, this book presents a classic subject in an up-to-date manner with a strong emphasis on failure analysis and prevention-based machine element design. It presents concepts, principles, data, analyses, procedures, and decision-making techniques necessary to design safe, efficient, and workable machine elements. Design-centric and focused, the book will help students develop the ability to conceptualize designs from written requirements and to translate these design concepts into models and detailed manufacturing drawings.
* Presents a consistent approach to the design of different machine elements from failure analysis through strength analysis and structural design, which facilitates students' understanding, learning, and integration of analysis with design
* Fundamental theoretical topics such as mechanics, friction, wear and lubrication, and fluid mechanics are embedded in each chapter to illustrate design in practice
* Includes examples, exercises, review questions, design and practice problems, and CAD examples in each self-contained chapter to enhance learning
Analysis and Design of Machine Elements is a design-centric textbook for advanced undergraduates majoring in Mechanical Engineering. Advanced students and engineers specializing in product design, vehicle engineering, power machinery, and engineering will also find it a useful reference and practical guide.
