For Freshmen/Sophomore-level courses in Power Transmission in departments of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Mechanical Engineering Technology, Electrical Engineering Technology, Industrial Technology; and for second-year courses in Industrial Power in a two-year curriculum in a Technical College.A welcome and more appropriate alternative to the power transmission manuals and references used by professionals in industry, this text provides an introduction to the elements of power transmission and the principles that guide the application of those elements in industry. It presents a straightforward development from the basic elements to the complex systems that achieve the full spectrum of manufacturing tasks in industry. It is not a "how to," but rather an expose of alternative approaches that can be weighed in the context of cost, ease of implementation, efficiency, flexibility, adaptability, and other payoff factors that lead to profitable approaches to manufacturing.show more
