Mechanical Design describes the design process for students of mechanical engineering. It introduces the reader to the concept that engineering design is applicable to the entire process of product manufacture. All phases of product design are considered, including marketing, specification, conceptualisation, embodiment, detailing, manufacture and retailing. Concentrating mainly on rotary machine elements such as bearings, shafts, gears, seals, chains, clutches and brakes, this book provides the methodology for 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.
