Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Taking a practical approach, this work illustrates how design, materials, and process selection must mesh together and be considered along with economic and environmental analysis, when developing a new product or changing an existing model. It also considers the trade-offs that must sometimes be made.

This second edition adds and revises topics such as environmental, function, and aesthetic considerations in design; environmental impact assessment of materials and processes; life cycle and recycling economics; and materials substitution.

The book begins with an intro that reviews stages of product development. This is followed by three sections covering

Mechanical failures, environmental degradation, and materials that resist different types of failure

Elements of engineering design and the effect of material properties and manufacturing processes on the design of components

Economic and environmental aspects of materials and manufacturing processes, as well as quantitative and computer-assisted methods for screening, ranking alternatives, and deciding on the optimum material/process combination

Examples and detailed case studies illustrating practical applications, as well as materials selection and substitution from a variety of industries, are included.

Each chapter begins with clear objectives and ends with a summary, review questions, and bibliography. Appendices supply tables of composition and properties and a glossary of technical terms. SI units are used; with Imperial units given when possible. This student-friendly text demonstrates how to balance design, materials, process selection, and economic and environmental analysis to optimize manufacturing processes for a given component.

The author maintains a book website which features PowerPoint presentations for each chapter, and access to a solutions manual for qualifying instructors.

Book News Annotation:

Some engineers chose a material first, other prefer to begin with the process. In either case they are setting the path for the project in terms of design, cost and performance. This professional reference which can also serve as a course text advocates taking the approach of concurrent engineering and applying it directly to all phases of the design process, making it as holistic as possible. Farag updates this edition with new theories and practices and includes new materials on environmental function, aesthetics, environmental impact assessment of materials and processes, life cycle and recycling economics and materials substitution. He describes the causes of component failure in service and materials that can resist such failure, ways of modifying the design of a component to make it more suitable for the material and the process, and lists the trade-offs in selecting an optimum combination of material and process.

Synopsis:

This student-friendly text illustrates how to balance design, materials, process selection, and economic and environmental analysis to optimize manufacturing processes for a given component. Following an overview of product design and development, the three-part book first discusses types of failure and ways to minimize it. Then it examines how material selection and manufacturing processes influence engineering design. The third part integrates technical and economic aspects of material selection. New and revised topics in this edition include new design considerations, environmental impact assessments, life cycle and recycling economics, and materials substitution.
