Designers at all levels of experience need a practical, complete reference that assists them in getting the job done faster and better. Machine Designers Reference fulfills this need, and then some. The result of this author’s 20 years of experience is 12 chapters packed with essential charts and tables and organized in a very sensible way. It features: selection, sizing and tolerances for mechanical parts and assemblies; concise best practices for mechanical design, supported by charts and tables; U.S. and metric units are presented for reader convenience; a thorough representation of metric hardware.
The author's intention with this book is to support and complement today's software programs. At the same time, the book is remarkably useful to mechanical engineering students and fresh graduates seeking to do extremely well with their curriculum or advance their career in design. Machine Designers Reference complements the coverage offered by standard textbooks in the field. It serves successfully as a bridge between the academic experience and useful design employment in the industry.
