Mechanical Engineering #128: Probability Applications in Mechanical Design Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The authors of this text seek to clarify mechanical fatigue and design problems by applying probability and computer analysis, and further extending the uses of probability to determine mechanical reliability and achieve optimization. The work solves examples using commercially available software. It is formatted with examples and problems for use in a one-semester graduate course.

Book News Annotation:

Clarifies fatigue and design problems by applying probability and computer analysis. Provides data reduction techniques for fitting experimental failure data to a statistical distribution, considering only Gaussian and Weibull distributions. Applies probability and computer analysis to fatigue, design, and variations of both, then develops concepts of optimization, presents techniques of geometric programming, and compares solutions to sample problems with computer- generated nonlinear programming solutions. Reliability is developed for mechanical systems and some failure rate data is presented. Includes chapter problems. Franklin Fisher teaches mechanical engineering at Loyola Marymount University. Joy Fisher is a consultant.

Synopsis:

This reference/text clarifies fatigue and design problems by applying probability and computer analysis, solving examples using commercially available software. Including over 800 equations, references, and drawings, the book outlines data reduction techniques for discrete and grouped data; covers linear and nonlinear optimization and the basics of mechanical reliability; presents geometric programming methods; expands principles applied to Gaussian and Weibull distributions to include nonparametric distributions; gives failure rate data for mechanical systems; explains Bayes theorem and decision trees; enumerates factors influencing fatigue behavior; and more.
