"The author writes about the need of an encyclopedia of component and equipment failures and provides it within the span of sixty six chapters... These chapters reveal the distilled quintessence of his long experience in the Indian Railways" Failure Prevention of plant and Machinery is based on the premise of "Zero-Failure performance" and the aspiration for the same. The book introduces the general features and investigative methods for determining failures of mechanical and electrical equipment. Also, it dwells on the degradation processes and highlights the failure modes and mechanisms, including the apparently trivial ones. This approach of the author, who has over 40 years of experience in maintaining a variety of maintenance engineers appreciate and solve problems like the recurrent failure of equipment due to design or maintenance defects. With this coverage, the book would be useful to reliability, plant, maintenance, electrical and mechanical engineers, and students of electrical and mechanical engineering.

MAXIMIZE PRODUCTIVITY BY KEEPING PLANT AND EQUIPMENT DOWNTIME AND UNSCHEDULED MAINTENANCE AT A MINIMUM
Constant monitoring and preventive maintenance are not the most effective ways of avoiding common problems in manufacturing equipment -- engineers need better, more reliable methods. Packed with expert advice, Plant and Machinery Failure Prevention is based on the premise of "zero-failure performance," a method designed to assist maintenance engineers discover and solve problems in mechanical and electrical equipment before they occur.
The author presents solid statistical as well as investigative methods for determining failures in mechanical and electrical equipment components -- including flat belts, vee belts, pulleys, gears, steel wire ropes, springs, gaskets, and more-at the earliest stage possible.
