The definitive machine design handbook for mechanical engineers, product designers, project engineers, design engineers, and manufacturing engineers covers every aspect of machine construction and operation. The 3rd edition of the Standard Handbook of Machine Design will be redesigned to meet the challenges of a new mechanical engineering age. In addition to adding chapters on structural plastics and adhesives, which are replacing the old nuts bolts and fasteners in design, the author will also update and streamline the remaining chapters.
From the Back Cover CHAPTER AND VERSE FOR DESIGN ENGINEERS Known as the professionals' bible, Standard Handbook of Machine Design puts the formulas, solutions, and reference material engineers need at their fingertips. Definitive and comprehensive, this superlative reference provides:
* Two new chapters on the evolution of a successful machine design and pressure cylinders * Classic computational methods * Current codes and standards * Comprehensive design solutions for topics such as Cams, Gears, Springs, Clutches, Brakes, and Bolted and Welded connections * A thesaurus of mechanisms * Tables, standards, and code data * Reorganization for quick look-up of information
