This text is intended as a first course in Engineering Design for Mechanical, Aeronautical and Production Engineering students. It does not assume any prior knowledge and is free from analytical theory, adopting a practical approach to the subject. Providing both background and practical details for examples, the book explains the fundamental and practical aspects of engineering design, while treating its subject qualitatively, without maths. It starts by discussing the engineering design process illustrated with examples from the author's own experience. The chapters which follow include items often ignored in general design books such as local lubricant starvation in cams, corner effects in welded structures, design principles of rubber block mountings, bellows units, bursting discs and seals.
