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.
Shows how algorithms developed from the basic principles of tribology can be used in a range of practical applications in mechanical devices and systems. Includes: bearings, gears, seals, clutches, brakes, tyres.
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.
This comprehensive text on principles and practice of mechanical design discusses the concepts, procedures, data, tools, and analytical methodologies needed to perform design calculations for the most frequently encountered mechanical elements such as shafts, gears, belt, rope and chain drives, bearings, springs, joints, couplings, brakes and clutches, flywheels, as well as design calculations of various IC engine parts. The book focuses on all aspects of design of machine elements including material selection and life or performance estimation under static, fatigue, impact and creep loading conditions. The book also introduces various engineering analysis tools such as MATLAB, AutoCAD, and ...
