Details: Product Description The concepts, procedures, data, and analysis techniques needed to design and integrate machine elements into mechanical devices and systems. Thousands of college students have used this book to learn about the principles and practices of mechanical design for over three decades―and many practicing engineers have either continued to use it in their careers, or newly discovered it as an invaluable resource in their work. The emphasis is on applying the technology of various machine elements while consistently considering those elements in the context of the larger machine of which they are a part. Appreciated for its readability, while recognized for its technical strength and comprehensive coverage of the material, Machine Elements in Mechanical Design is the ideal guide to the skills and knowledge needed for success in this field. Throughout, references to a broad array of available resources, from industrial sources and professional organizations, promote practical decision making in design and provide excellent preparation for moving from an academic environment to a professional position with strong, long-term growth potential. Continuing the book’s emphasis on proven approaches and the use of readily available materials, and its focus on practical, safe, and efficient design, this edition includes new content and adjustments contributed by the two new coauthors and features stronger technical content in stress analysis, a wider set of technical topics, and beautiful enhancements to the visual attractiveness of the book throughout numerous new full-color graphic illustrations. About the Author Robert L. Mott is professor emeritus of engineering technology at the University of Dayton. He is a member of ASEE, SME, and ASME. He is a Fellow of ASEE and a recipient of the ASEE James H. McGraw Award and the Archie Higdon Distinguished Educator Award from the Mechanics Division. He is a recipient of the SME Education Award. He holds the Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree from General Motors Institute (Now Kettering University) and the Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University. He has authored three textbooks; Applied Fluid Mechanics, 7th Edition (2015) and Machine Elements in Mechanical Design, 6th Edition(2018), published by Pearson/Prentice-Hall; and Applied Strength of Materials, 6th Edition (2017) published by CRC Press. His work experience includes serving as a research engineer for General Motors Corporation, consulting for industrial clients, working for the University of Dayton Research Institute, leading the Center for Advanced Manufacturing for UDRI, and expert witness for accident analysis cases for industrial and automotive accident cases. He has also served as a senior personnel for 12 years for the NSF-sponsored National Center for Manufacturing Education based in Dayton, Ohio.   Edward M. Vavrek is an associate professor in mechanical engineering technology at Purdue University Northwest, located at the Westville, IN campus, an extension of Purdue University. He is a member of AGMA, ASME, and ASEE. He received his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University Calumet, Masters in Business Administration from Indiana University Northwest, and Masters in Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology. He has significant industrial experience in design and development of machinery, using SolidWorks and Inventor, within the printing/converting, shipbuilding, railroad, steel mill, and automotive industries. He has presented multiple papers on his software developed for the area of machine design. He holds one U.S. patent. He also does extensive private consulting in mechanical design that is highly relevant to the content of this book.   Dr. Jyhwen Wang, Ph.D. is a professor with dual appointment in the departments of Engineering Technology and Industrial Distribution and Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M
