The second edition of this proven text continues to offer a sound foundation for mechanical design based upon the principles of mechanics. Clearly illustrating these principles through designs of mechanical components, the new edition of this text is fully revised and updated, and strengthened by substantially reworked topical coverage. Pedagogically strong and exceptionally well-written, this text establishes the strong theoretical background necessary for mechanical component design better than any other.* provides the strong theoretical background necessary for mechanical component design, allowing students to understand the principles underlying the design of machine elements. presents a full chapter on impact covering methods of analysis and design for impact. a new chapter on gears and gear trains has been added, expanding greatly the treatment of gears and giving useful information on gear trains. includes a revised treatment of boundary lubrication with expanded explanation of concepts to provide an improved basis for design of bearings based on boundary lubrication. a revised treatment of threaded connections including the powerscrew equation provides necessary information on threaded and bolted connections.a discussion of nonlinear behavior of belleville springs has been added to provide design procedures for these springs. now includes coverage of large-deflections of beams to give information for analysis and design of flexible bars. contains a wealth of problems as well as numerous worked examples to reinforce material in the text.
