Rigorous in approach, this book provides the strong theoretical background -- based on the principles of mechanics -- necessary for mechanical component analysis and design. Unlike others on the subject, it integrates coverage of basics, failure prevention, and the design of mechanical elements, and provides a detailed and consistent presentation of the process of analysis -- from the underlying assumptions and limitations, to the final results, discussion of those results, references to alternative approaches, and numerous and interesting practical problems. Covers the full range of topics -- fluid-film lubrication and sliding element bearings; friction theory and applications; brakes, clutches, and belt drives; miscellaneous transmission components; stress, strain, and strength; design for fatigue strength and life, shaft design; thermal properties and stresses; residual stresses; threaded connections; axially symmetrical loading; mechanical components in flexure; surface contacts, cams, general shapes; and rolling-element bearing; spur, helical, bevel and worm gears; gear trains, power screws; torsion; impact. The Second Edition features updated coverage of gears and gear trains; boundary lubrication; threaded connections; nonlinear behavior of belleville springs; and large-deflections of beams. For analytical mechanical engineers.

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.
