Preface of Fundamentals of Machine Component Design(6th edition),by R.C. Juvinall and K.M. Marshek.

This book is intended as a text for first courses in Mechanical Engineering Design and as a reference for practicing engineers. It is assumed that the user has had basic courses in Mechanics, Strength of Materials, and Materials Properties. However, the first nine chapters of the book (Part I) serve to review as well as extend this basic background. The remaining chapters (Part II) deal with the application of these fundamentals to specific machine components. Features of the sixth edition of the text include:

• Homework problems—A large number of new problems are added that help the student focus on introductory concepts and definitions.

• Safety considerations—The textbook continues to focus on real world safety issues adapted from actual case studies. For example, presented are an analysis of truck pick up tailgate cable failures, an unguarded in-running nip point of a treadmill belt drive, the sudden collapse of a cantilevered section of a walkway under demolition, the unexpected release of a hack squat machine carriage, the exposed shaft of an industrial finger jointer, and the safety of a two-wheeled, self-balancing electric personal transport.

• Engineering material selection—New charts from Professor Ashby’s material selection procedure form the basis for introducing the student to selection and use of common engineering materials.

• Elastic stability—A design study presents an introduction to a captive cap that has two elastically stable positions: “opened” and “closed.” The study references a patent and an exercise, the solution of which reveals a method of patent analysis.

• Abrasive wear—A device for screening seal materials is studied. An associated homework problem introduces the student to a patented test apparatus used to select the best materials for tricone drilling bits.

• Impact absorber—The concept of reducing impact forces and dissipating and dispersing impact loads is expanded to footwear with the introduction of a design study and homework problem involving a high heel shoe impact absorber.

• Fasteners—A design case study introduces a fastening device that is comprised of multiple components. A flexible slotted circular binding band in effect acts like a worm gear, and a thread screw member acts like a worm in driving the joined ends of the circular band. A new related homework problem provides the student with an opportunity to fully understand a related patent.

• Suspension system—A design study gives the student an opportunity to better understand a patented front and rear vehicle suspension system, and suspension related vehicle components.

• Microscale and nanoscale machine elements—A chapter contributed by Professor Cullinan presents a detailed study of micro–nano machine elements, such as mechanical sensors, actuators, and bearings that are used in microelectromechanical (MEMS) and nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS)

Remote control racecars—A design project case study authored by Professor Cullinan introduces readers to an exciting design-and-build racecar experience that involves design, analysis, experimentation, and evaluation, culminating with a student RC car race.

• Appendix—The appendices have been edited and condensed to focus on supplemental material that is most necessary for reference work with the textbook.
