New and Improved SI Edition-Uses SI Units Exclusively in the Text

Adapting to the changing nature of the engineering profession, this third edition of Fundamentals of Machine Elements aggressively delves into the fundamentals and design of machine elements with an SI version. This latest edition includes a plethora of pedagogy, providing a greater understanding of theory and design.

Significantly Enhanced and Fully Illustrated

The material has been organized to aid students of all levels in design synthesis and analysis approaches, to provide guidance through design procedures for synthesis issues, and to expose readers to a wide variety of machine elements. Each chapter contains a quote and photograph related to the chapter as well as case studies, examples, design procedures, an abstract, list of symbols and subscripts, recommended readings, a summary of equations, and end-of-chapter problems.

What's New in the Third Edition:

Covers life cycle engineeringProvides a description of the hardness and common hardness testsOffers an inclusion of flat groove stress concentration factorsAdds the staircase method for determining endurance limits and includes Haigh diagrams to show the effects of mean stressDiscusses typical surface finishes in machine elements and manufacturing processes used to produce themPresents a new treatment of spline, pin, and retaining ring design, and a new section on the design of shaft couplingsReflects the latest International Standards Organization standardsSimplifies the geometry factors for bevel gearsIncludes a design synthesis approach for worm gearsExpands the discussion of fasteners and weldsDiscusses the importance of the heat affected zone for weld qualityDescribes the classes of welds and their analysis methodsConsiders gas springs and wave springsContains the latest standards and manufacturer's recommendations on belt design, chains, and wire ropes

The text also expands the appendices to include a wide variety of material properties, geometry factors for fracture analysis, and new summaries of beam deflection.

"Design is essential in the modern economy, and this book does a superb job in explaining both design analysis and design synthesis. Schmid, Hamrock and Jacobson are well-known experts in the field, and it shows from this concise and well-written book."
Prof. Bharat Bhushan, Ohio Eminent Scholar and The Howard D. Winbigler Professor, Director, Nanoprobe Laboratory for Bio- & Nanotechnology and Biomimetics (NLB2), Ohio State University, Columbus, USA

"I have been working as a bearing engineer for nearly two decades, and have come across many different machine design and application problems associated with the rolling element bearing. Most of the time, design problems can be handled quickly if the engineer has a good fundamental understanding of how a machine element works, but this information is unfortunately missing from most conventional treatments of the subject matter. This book gives the reader enough of a fundamental background to understand the machine elements and design the overall system, and it is highly recommended."
Mike Kotzalas, The Timken Company, Boca Raton, Florida, USA

"This book is a must for every mechanical engineering student for use as a textbook, and should be in every engineer s library as a reference book. I wish it was available 30 years ago!
Jim Adams, Director, Technical Services, Metal Powder Industries Federation,
Princeton, New Jersey, USA

"For many years a leading automobile company sponsored Berkeley research on the "Composite Transmission Error Prediction for Automatic Transmissions." I only wish this excellent book was available at that time to bring our software engineers 'up to speed' on gear fundamentals, manufacturing, and gear design synthesis, as well as other machine elements."
Paul Wright, Professor of Mechanical Engineering, University of California, Berkeley, USA
