"Machine design" is an interdisciplinary subject in mechanical engineering. It draws infor-mation from thermal science, mechanics of solids, theory of elasticity, fluid science, materialscience, engineering mechanics, experimental stress analysis, production engineering, andsome other branches of sciences. Machine design, therefore, assimilates more informationfrom these disciplines than does any other engineering subject.It is indeed gratifying that the first edition of
Machine Design Databook
published byMcGraw-Hill in the year 1994 was so well received by the students, teachers, designers, prac-ticing engineers, and working professionals that within a short period after its publication allthe copies were sold out. The encouraging reception accorded to the first edition of thisDatabook has inspired the author to enhance its usefulness further by enlarging it. Oneof the several reasons for publishing a new second edition of any engineering handbookis to update the technical material and to take advantage of the enhanced receptivity ofthe readers. The present edition has been enlarged by including several tables, new drawings,and equations and by adding three new chapters-namely-"Elements of Machine ToolDesign," "Applied Elasticity," and "Retaining Rings and Circlips". The author hopesthat the inclusion of these will be of immense help to students, teachers, designers, practicingengineers, and working professionals in machine design.The writer of any handbook on an engineering subject has to keep in touch with the devel-opments taking place on the borders of discovery and frontiers of research in the subject,i.e., in all related subjects. This requires extensive study of the burgeoning literature onthe subject both in the form of books and in the form of technical papers in professionaljournals. The author has left no stone unturned in reading all of the latest literature availableon the subject to update the Databook and also to enhance its professional value. The pre-sent revised edition, therefore, makes a distinct improvement over its predecessor in con-tents, presentation, and arrangement by adding three new chapters.
Machine Design Databook
provides weights and measures both in SI and fps, i.e., U.S.Customary System units, for the benefit of students, teachers, designers, practicing engi-neers, and working professionals.The properties of engineering materials, presented in this Databook in Chapter 1, aretaken from ANSI, ISO, ASME, Det Norske Veritas Classification, DIN, UNS (SAE),AISI, ASTM, and Indian Standards and are in both SI and U.S. Customary Systemunits. All formulas (empirical, semi-empirical and otherwise), charts, graphs and tablesare in both SI and US Customary units.All elementary deflection, stress, strain, moments and torsion equations under static anddynamic conditions are given in Chapters 2 and 3. Chapter 4, on stress concentration andstress intensity in machine members, includes formulas, graphs, and tables for theoreticaland fatigue stress concentration factors and stress intensity factors for bolts, nuts, screws,weldments, plates with and without cutouts (holes) of various shapes, shoulders, andnotches in shafts and plates etc. Chapter 5 treats the design ofmachine elements for strength.The factor of safety, size effect, surface finish, reliability, corrosion, temperature effect, fati-gue and stochastic approach are considered in this chapter. A number of design equationsand data are given in Chapter 6 for design of cams.The design of boilers, pressure vessels, boiler tubes and pipes, shells and plates with latestdata from ASME Boilers and Pressure Vessels Code and Indian Standards for Unfired Pres-sure Vessels are presented in Chapters 7, 8, and 9. The design equations, charts, graphs, andtables are presented in a more accessible and useful form for the designers, students, teachers,
