It involves the application off undamentals to specific machine components. In engineering practice, problems involving the design, analysis, and application of mechanical components can rarely be solved by the application off undamentals alone. While knowledge of the basic science is critically important, it is often not sufficient. In most cases, empirical information must be used to make appropriate “engineering decisions.
In actual engineering design problems, there is seldom only one correct answer. For example, the engineering staffs of competing companies arrive at different product designs as “solutions” to the same problem. And these solutions change with fads for new technologies, new materials, new manufacturing methods, new marketing conditions, etc. For many students, this text-based course will be their first experience dealing with such specialized engineering problems.
About the Book
The latest edition of Fundamentals of Machine Component Design by Juvinall/Marshek focuses on the strategies and skills needed to solve problems from a large amount of information. This revised edition continues to focus on the fundamentals of component design and also addresses fatigue.
In addition, several new features, including updated end-of-chapter questions, removal of weak problems and addition of new problems, updated applications for simultaneity and relevance and new applications where appropriate, new system analysis questions and examples, improved sections dealing with fatigue, expanded coverage of failure theory, and updated references are Included.
