The text provides coverage of the fundamentals of machine elements and their application in real engineering situations. The book is divided into two parts. Part I (chapters 1-8) covers the fundamentals and Part II (chapters 9-19) uses the fundamentals while considering the design of various examples and elements. "Fundamentals of Machine Elements" includes examples and homework problems designed to test students' understanding and to motivate them in their studies. Engineering design is stressed throughout the book through the use of open-ended problems, design procedure boxes, and in-text discussion. Furthermore, there is a final chapter of case studies and multi-concept design projects and problems likely to be encountered by practising engineers.
