Written in clear, simple language, using hundreds of worked-out problems and numerical examples, this handbook provides the most practical, up-to-date information available on both basic design considerations and the design of specific machine elements.
For more than a decade, machine designers have relied on this definitive handbook for fast, accurate answers to virtually all their design questions. Packed with worked-out problems and numerical examples, the Handbook provides the most practical, up-to-date information available on basic design considerations and the creation of specific elements. The contents include: codes; regulations; statistical considerations; measurements and inference numerical methods; computational considerations; wear; solid materials; the strength of cold-worked and heat-treated steels; usability; safety; minimizing engineering effort; strength under static circumstances; fundamentals of arc welding; instabilities in beam and columns; curved beams and riveted joints; springs; lubrication; gaskets; rolling-contact bearings; couplings; structural plastics and adhesives; clutches and brakes; belt drives; chain drives; spur gears; bevel and hypoid gears; helical gears; worm gearing; cycle analysis; fluid power systems and circuit design; corrosion; noise and its control; gear trains; robots and smart machines; sections and shapes-tabular data; stress; and deflection.
