Materials Selection in Mechanical Design
Materials Selection in Mechanical Design, Third Edition /by Michael F. Ashby. Understanding materials, their properties and behavior is fundamental to engineering design, and a key application of materials science. Written for all students of engineering, materials science and design, this book describes the procedures for material selection in mechanical design in order to ensure that the most suitable materials for a given application are identified from the full range of materials and section shapes available. Fully revised and expanded for this third edition, Materials Selection in Mechanical Design is recognized as one of the leading texts, and provides a unique and genuinely innovative resource.

Online tutor resources -- fully worked Instructor's Manual, full color materials selection charts, image bank for lecture presentations.
Reader-friendly approach and attractive, easy to use two-color presentation.
Illustrated Sourcebook of Mechanical Components
A treasure chest of ideas and data, Robert O. Parmley's Illustrated Sourcebook of Mechanical Components is testimony to centuries of engineering genius that produced the components that make modern mechanical wonders possible.

This kaleidoscopic display of thousands of applications helps you find the perfect device quickly, including:
*Power transmission u gears and gearing...chains, sprockets and ratchets...belts and belting...shafts and couplings...clutches *Connections - seals and packings...tube and pipe connections...bushings and bearings...locking and clamping...wire and cable *Single components - washers...retaining rings... o-rings...grommets, spacers and inserts...balls..springs...pins...cams...threaded components *Assemblies: fastening and joining...design hints...mechansims...linkage...fabrication tips...innovative valving...pumps...creative assemblies You'll also find design formulas, structural data, nomograms, charts and unusual tables rarely found in conventional technical sources.
Mechanical Properties of Ceramics
This excellent text/reference presents a systematic introductory treatment of the current understanding, supplemented by empirical facts, of the subject and describes the role of microstructure in determining the effect of mechanical properties of ceramics. Chapters on each of the major types of structural ceramics provide a guide to achievable mechanical properties. Discusses design for specified levels of safety and for minimal life under service conditions. Includes scores of illustrations, tables and figures
Advances in Integrated Design and Manufacturing in Mechanical Engineering II
The 33 papers presented in this book were selected from amongst the 97 papers presented during the sixth edition of the International Conference on Integrated Design and Manufacturing in Mechanical Engineering during 28 sessions. Two keynote papers, one presented by Professor Stephen Lu, from the IMPACT Research Laboratory, University of Southern California, USA, on Supporting participative joint decisions in integrated design and manufacturing teams , and one written by Professor Stefan Rudolph from Stuttgart University about Know-How Reuse in the conceptual design phase of complex engineering products or:
Are you still constructing manually or do you generate already automatically , introduce the subject of the Conference and are followed by the different themes highlighted during the conference:
The design/manufacturing interface; Integrated design of manufacturing processes; Life cycle design and manufacturing approaches; Agility in design and manufacture; Knowledge in engineering; and Management in production systems.
Cement based composites: Materials, Mechanical Properties and Performance
This book considers the properties and behaviour of cement-based materials from the point of view of composite science and technology. It deals particularly with newer forms of cement-based materials and also with a composite approach to conventional materials and their special properties. Emphasis is put on non-conventional reinforcement and design methods, problems at interfaces in the materials and on durability of structures made with them.
Fundamentals of Mechanical Vibrations
With a successful first edition, the popularity of the book will continue in its revision as it incorporates a chapter on Finite Elements, and new problems including Matlab and Mathcad problems.
Guidelines for Mechanical Integrity Systems
In recent years, process safety management system compliance audits have revealed that organizations often have significant opportunities for improving their Mechanical Integrity programs. As part of the Center for Chemical Process Safety's Guidelines series, Guidelines for Mechanical Integrity Systems provides practitioners a basic familiarity of mechanical integrity concepts and best practices. The book recommends efficient approaches for establishing a successful MI program.
Cats' Paws and Catapults: Mechanical Worlds of Nature and People
Nature often comes up with simpler solutions to engineering problems than do human engineers. Does that mean that nature's technology is superior? Arguing that nature can be improved upon, Vogel's comparison of biological and human-made technologies shows how and why.
Materials Selection in Mechanical Design
Describes procedures for materials selection in mechanical design, allowing the most suitable materials for a given application to be identified from the full range of materials and section shapes available.
New materials enable advances in engineering design. This book describes a procedure for material selection in mechanical design, allowing the most suitable materials for a given application to be identified from the full range of materials and section shapes available. A novel approach is adopted not found anywhere else.
Materials are introduced through their properties; materials selection charts (a new development) capture the important features of all materials, allowing rapid retrieval of information and application of selection techniques. Merit indices, combined with charts, allow optimisation of the materials selection process. Sources of material property data are reviewed and approaches to their use are given. Material processing and its influence on the design are discussed. The book closes with chapters on aesthetics and industrial design. Case studies are developed as a method of illustrating the procedure and as a way of developing the ideas further.
