About the Authors
  • Providing extensive coverage and comprehensive discussion on the fundamental concepts and processes of machine design, this book begins with detailed discussion of the types of materials, their properties and selection criteria for designing. The text, the first volume of a two volume set, covers different types of stresses including direct stress, bending stress, torsional stress and combined stress in detail. It goes on to explain various types of temporary and permanent joints including pin joint, cotter joint, threaded joint and welded joint. Finally, the book covers the design procedure of keys, cotters, couplings, shafts, levers and springs. Also examined are applications of different types of joints used in boilers, bridges, power presses, automobile springs, crew jack and coupling.

    • Discusses bending stresses, combined stresses and stress concentration
    • Includes comprehensive analysis of different types of joints including cotter, riveted and welded joints
    • Aids understanding by discussing concepts with the help of solved problems wherever necessary
    • Provides coverage of applications of different types of joints used in boilers, bridges, power presses and coupling
