Summary and Info
The latest ideas in machine analysis and design have led to a major revision of the field's leading handbook. New chapters cover ergonomics, safety, and computer-aided design, with revised information on numerical methods, belt devices, statistics, standards, and codes and regulations. Key features include: *new material on ergonomics, safety, and computer-aided design; *practical reference data that helps machines designers solve common problems--with a minimum of theory. *current CAS/CAM applications, other machine computational aids, and robotic applications in machine design. This definitive machine design handbook for product designers, project engineers, design engineers, and manufacturing engineers covers every aspect of machine construction and operations. Voluminous and heavily illustrated, it discusses standards, codes and regulations; wear; solid materials, seals; flywheels; power screws; threaded fasteners; springs; lubrication; gaskets; coupling; belt drive; gears; shafting; vibration and control; linkage; and corrosion.
