The fifth edition of The Mechanical Design Process combines a practical overview of the design process with case material and real-life engineering insights. Ullman's work as an innovative designer comes through consistently, and has made this book a favorite with readers. This book conveys the "flavor" of design, addressing both traditional engineering topics as well as real-world issues like creative thinking, synthesis of ideas, visualization, teamwork, sense of customer needs and product success factors, and the financial aspects of design alternatives, in a practical and motivating manner. New in this edition are examples from industry and over twenty online templates that help students prepare complete and consistent assignments while learning the material. This text is appropriate primarily for the Senior Design course taken by mechanical engineering students, though it can also be used in design courses offered earlier in the curriculum. Working engineers also find it to be a readable, practical overview of the modern design process.

The seventh edition ofMechanical Engineering Designmarks a return to the basic approaches that have made this book the standard in machine design for over 40 years. At the same time it has been significantly updated and modernized for today's engineering students and professional engineers. Working from extensive market research and reviews of the 6th edition, the new 7th edition features reduced coverage of uncertainty and statistical methods. Statistics is now treated (in chapter 2) as one of several methods available to design engineers, and statistical applications are no longer integrated throughout the text, examples and problem sets. Other major changes include updated coverage of the design process, streamlined coverage of statistics, a more practical overview of materials and materials selection (moved to chapter 3),revised coverage of failure and fatigue, and review of basic strength of materials topics to make a clearer link with prerequisite courses. Overall coverage of basic concepts has been made more clear and concise, with some advanced topics deleted, so that readers can easily navigate key topics. Problem sets have been improved, with new problems added to help students progressively work through them. The book has an Online Learning Center with several powerful components: MATLAB for Machine Design (featuring highly visual MATLAB simulations and accompanying source code); the "FEPC" 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 I and II of the text. Complete Problem Solutions and PowerPoint slides of book illustrations are available for instructors, under password protection. A printed Instructor's Solutions Manual is also available, with detailed solutions to all chapter problems.

From one of the authors of The Unwritten Laws of Engineering and The Unwritten Laws of Business, this concise and readable book is an excellent primer or refresher for any professional interested in the basic principles and practices of good mechanical design. In this handy and unique volume the author uses his own experience, along with input from other expert designers, to explicitly state design principles and practices. Readers will not have to discover these principles on their own and will be able to apply these fundamental concepts throughout their designs.

Ugural's Mechanical Design: An Integrated Approach provides a comprehensive, unified approach to the subject of machine element design for Mechanical Engineering students and practicing engineers. The author's expertise in engineering mechanics is demonstrated in Part I (Fundamentals), where readers are given an exceptionally strong treatment of the design process, stress & strain, deflection & stiffness, energy methods, and failure/fatigue criteria. Advanced topics in mechanics (marked with an asterisk in the Table of Contents) are provided for optional use. The first 8 chapters provide the conceptual basis for Part II (Applications), where the major classes of machine components are covered. Optional coverage of finite element analysis is included, in the final chapter of the text, with selected examples and cases showing FEA applications in mechanical design. In addition to numerous worked-out examples and chapter problems, detailed Case Studies are included to show the intricacies of real design work, and the integration of engineering mechanics concepts with actual design procedures. The author provides a brief but comprehensive listing of derivations for users to avoid the "cookbook" approach many books take. Numerous illustrations provide a visual interpretation of the equations used, making the text appropriate for diverse learning styles. The approach is designed to allow for use of calculators and computers throughout, and to show the ways computer analysis can be used to model problems and explore "what if?" design analysis scenarios. An Online Learning Center website provides a wealth of resources for instructors, students and other readers; and a printed Instructor Solutions Manual is also available.

Dieter's Engineering Design represents a major update of this classic textbook for senior design courses. As in previous editions, Engineering Design provides a broader overview of topics than most design texts and contains much more prescriptive guidance on how to carry out design. Dieter focuses on material selection as well as how to implement the design process. Engineering Design provides the senior mechanical engineering students with a realistic understanding of the design process. It is written from the viewpoint that design is the central activity of the engineering profession, and it is more concerned with developing attitudes and approaches than in presenting design techniques and tools.
