Mechanical Engineering Design, 7th ed.
New York: McGraw-Hill, 2004
TJ230 .S5 2004
The seventh edition of Mechanical Engineering Design marks a return to the basic approach that has made this book the standard in machine design for over 40 years. The textbook has been updated and modernized for today's engineering students and professional engineers.
New to this edition: Statistics is presented as a self-contained, optional unit (chapter 2); Deterministic methods are now used throughout all chapters of the text; Mainstream coverage of machine design topics, with limited coverage of statistical methods; Clear and concise coverage of fundamental concepts; Updated problem sets and examples; Review of basic strength of materials topics to provide a clearer link to prerequisite courses; Improved coverage of mechanics topics such as failure, fracture, and fatigue; Updated coverage of the design process; Practical coverage of engineering materials moved up to Part 1 of the text.
The book has an Online Learning Center, www.mhhe.com/shigley7, with several powerful components: MATLAB, for Machine Design (for highly visual MATLAB simulations and accompanying source code); the "FEPV" finite element program, with accompanying Finite Element Primer and FEM Tutorials; interactive FE Exam questions for Machine Design; and Machine Design Tutorials for study of key concepts from Parts 1 and 2 of the text. The instructor's section of the Online Learning Center provides PowerPoint slides of text illustrations.
