Mechanical Design Engineering Handbook, Third Edition discusses the mechanical engineering skills that are essential to power generation, production, and transportation. Machine elements such as bearings, shafts, gears, belts, chains, clutches and belts represent fundamental building blocks for a wide range of technology applications. The aim of this handbook is to present an overview of the design process and to introduce the technology and selection of specific machine elements that are fundamental to a wide range of mechanical engineering design applications.

This book includes detailed worked examples for the design and application of machine elements and over 600 images, with line drawings complemented by solid model illustrations to aid understanding of the machine elements and assemblies concerned. The context for engineering and mechanical design is introduced in the first chapter, which also presents a blended design process, incorporating principles from systematic and holistic design, as well as practical project management.
