Fundamentals of Machine Component De 2ND Editionby Robert C Juvinall
Synopses & Reviews
This Second Edition, revised and updated, retains the features of the first edition and incorporates several improvements that stress and promote precise thought in the solution of mechanical component design problems. The major change is the addition of the sample problem format, which includes a restatement, solution and comments for the problem with respect to: given, find, schematic, decisions, assumptions, analysis and comments. A decisions format has also been added which allows students to clearly see the differences between design and analysis. Further changes include: a more in-depth and unified treatment of the basics of work, energy and power and their relationship to the thermodynamic approach; a more direct presentation of the systems of units and dimensions; and additional homework problems without repetition of problems.
Book News Annotation:
Revised and updated (1st ed., 1983) text for first courses in mechanical engineering design and as a reference for practicing engineers. Although it assumes basic courses in mechanics, strength of materials, and materials properties, Part I reviews as well as extends this basic background. Part II deals with the application of these fundamentals to specific machine components and, finally, to a complete machine.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
This indispensable reference reviews the basics of mechanics, strength of materials, and materials properties, and applies these fundamentals to specific machine components. Throughout, the authors stress and promote precise thought in the solution of mechanical component design problems.
