Back cover copy

Now in its eighth edition, this newly revised version of a classic text from the field of machine design contains 15 self-contained chapters covering the fundamental principles for this important branch of mechanical engineering. The material is drawn from a variety of sources and makes extensive use of structured computational examples to illustrate actual design applications.

Among the key features of this new edition are:

A new chapter on the design with plastic materials. A chapter devoted to form synthesis of machine parts to enable the reader to critique existing machine assemblages with a view toward creating improved designs. A CD-ROM containing 54 Microsoft Excel spreadsheet modules to assist with the implementation of complex design tasks. Most of these modules now feature drop-down menus, as well as dual-unit capability. A review of the fundamentals of the strength of materials appropriate for the study of machine design.
