Overview

Dieter's Engineering Design 4/e represents a major update of this classic textbook for senior design courses. As in previous editions, Engineering Design provides a broader overview of topics than most design texts and contains much more prescriptive guidance on how to carry out design. Dieter focuses on material selection as well as how to implement the design process.

Engineering Design provides the senior mechanical engineering students with a realistic understanding of the design process. It is written from the viewpoint that design is the central activity of the engineering profession, and it is more concerned with developing attitudes and approaches than in presenting design techniques and tools.

Engineering Design provides a realistic understanding of the engineering design process. The book presents in detail (Chapters 1 through 9) an eight-step process that gives prescriptive guidance to the student from problem definition through detail design. Chapters 10 through 16 present more specific treatment of speciality topics (design for X). The text is intended to be used in either a junior or senior engineering course with an integrated hands-on design project.
