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.
Ajeet Singh was a Professor and Head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology (MNNIT), Allahabad. He has more than three decades of teaching experience at undergraduate and graduate level, and taught courses including machine design, internal combustion engines, tribology, and computer aided design and engineering processes. He has published several papers in national and international journals, and is also the author of Working with AutoCAD 2000 (2002) and Machine Drawing, 2nd edition (2012).
