Details: Product Description An integrated, case-based approach to Machine Design. Robert Norton’s Machine Design is an up-to-date text that helps students develop a fundamental understanding of the underlying theories behind design problems. Rather than taking a “cookbook” approach to the subject that presents a collection of disparate topics, this text offers an integrated approach to machine elements using case studies to illustrate and tie key concepts together. KEY TOPICS: Introduction to Design; Materials and Processes; Load Determination; Stress, Strain, and Deflection; Static Failure Theories; Fatigue Failure Theories; Surface Failure; Finite Element Analysis; Design Case Studies; Shafts, Keys, and Couplings; Bearings and Lubrication; Spur Gears; Helical, Bevel, and Worm Gears; Spring Design; Screws and Fasteners; Weldments; Clutches and Breaks; Material Properties; Beam Tables; Stress-Concentration Factors. MARKET: For anyone interested in understanding the theory behind machine design. From the Back Cover This textbook presents an integrated approach to the design of machine elements by tying together the usual set of machine-element topics with a series of case studies that demonstrate the interrelationships between force, stress and failure analysis in real-world design. While emphasizing the design and synthesis aspects of the subject, the book nevertheless presents a thorough and complete treatment of the requisite engineering mechanics topics and provides a good balance between synthesis and analysis. The machine-design subject matter is presented in an up-to-date manner using computer-aided design techniques. Most of the 75 examples and 25 case-study analyses are solved with an equation solver and over 200 computer files (for both Macintosh and Windows/DOS computers) are provided on the attached CD-ROM. About the Author   Robert L. Norton earned undergraduate degrees in both mechanical engineering and industrial technology at Northeastern University and an MS in engineering design at Tufts University. He is a registered professional engineer in Massachusetts. He has extensive industrial experience in engineering design and manufacturing and many years’ experience teaching mechanical engineering, engineering design, computer science, and related subjects at Northeastern University, Tufts University, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute.   At Polaroid Corporation for 10 years, he designed cameras, related mechanisms, and high-speed automated machinery. He spent three years at Jet Spray Cooler Inc., designing food-handling machinery and products. For five years he helped develop artificial-heart and noninvasive assisted-circulation (counterpulsation) devices at the Tufts New England Medical Center and Boston City Hospital. Since leaving industry to join academia, he has continued as an independent consultant on engineering projects ranging from disposable medical products to high-speed production machinery. He holds 13 U.S. patents.   Norton has been on the faculty of Worcester Polytechnic Institute since 1981 and is currently the Milton P. Higgins II Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Russell P. Searle Distinguished Instructor, Head of the Design Group in that department, and the Director of the Gillette Project Center at WPI. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in mechanical engineering with emphasis on design, kinematics, vibrations, and dynamics of machinery.   He is the author of numerous technical papers and journal articles covering kinematics, dynamics of machinery, cam design and manufacturing, computers in education, and engineering education and of the texts Design of Machinery, Machine Design: An Integrated Approach and the Cam Design and Manufacturing Handbook. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers. But, since his main interest is in teaching, he is most proud of the fact that, in 2007, he was ch
