This is a new machine design book with a failure prevention perspective, that offers balance between analysis and design. Coverage includes design of machine elements as well as integration of components into sub-assemblies and whole machines. Each chapter in Part II: Design Applications, includes discussion of uses and characteristics, probable failure modes, and typical materials used.
