Book Description

The text is intended for undergraduate courses in mechanical engineering design. It teaches students to apply the background they have developed in mathematics, physics, the thermal-fluid sciences, and computers to questions unique to engineering design. This edition features emphasis on reader involvement in programming; a unique arrangement of the material on gearing to provide maximum flexibility in scheduling topics; complete revisions of almost every chapter; completely new home problems, and an optional reliability method of design, both of which are used throughout the book; and additional emphasis on designing to achieve quality-control objectives.

4A classic 'must-have' for any Mechanical Engineer
By Nathan Terwilliger
Excellent reference book and a must-have for ANY mechanical engineer working in ANY discipline. Even though I have the 8th edition from college, I purchased this 4th edition since I read it is less "textbook-y". A good compliment to Mark's Standard Handbook - I'd hazard to say the two of these will cover pretty much anything you need.

My 4-star rating is simply because I felt mislead by the seller of my particular copy, who advised it was a 'clean' copy in good condition whereas mine is full of tabs and writing. To their credit, they refunded me my money.

5Excellent Reference
By Kindle Customer
I work in an high technology mechanical engineering postion and use this gem of a book every single day. Whenever I have a question or need additional information or refreshing on a topic, this is the first place I turn. It is a purchase that I wish that I had made years ago to aid me in my every day activities.

5Go to
By Nick Stroud
The go to book for machine component design for my undergrad ME program. Essentially the same book as the newer/est version and at a fraction of the price. I its a book that sits on my shelf as an engineer. The book binding is a little fragile, so take care of these things and stay away from used books in the lower end of the condition spectrum.
