Overview

This book describes the design process of mechanical engineering. It introduces the reader to the concept that engineering design is applicable to the entire process of product manufacturing. All phases of product design are considered including marketing, specification, conceptualization, embodiment, detailing, manufacture, and retailing. Concentrating mainly on rotary machine elements such as bearings, shafts, gears, seals, belts, chains, clutches, and brakes, the book provides the methodology for the detailing and selection of these elements as part of the design process. Fully-worked examples are provided in each chapter, along with questions for the reader. Complete solutions are provided in appendices.

Audience: Undergraduate students in Mechanical Engineering; Manufacturing Engineering; Industrial design; Automotive Engineering.
