Mark’s Calculations For Machine Design by Thomas Brown

Mark's Calculations For Machine Design PDF

Mark’s Calculations For Machine Design – Everyday Engineers must solve some of the most difficult design problems and often with little time and money to spare. It was with this in mind that this book was designed.

Based on the best selling Mark’s Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers, Mark’s Standard Engineering Calculations For Machine Design offers a detailed treatment of topics in statics, friction, kinematics, dynamics, energy relations, impulse and momentum, systems of particles, variable mass systems, and three-dimensional rigid body analysis. Among the advanced topics are spherical coordinates, shear modulus tangential unit vector tension, deformable media, and torsion (twisting).

This information-packed reference is the perfect bridge between the principles outlined in textbooks and the challenges of engineering practice. Engineer and educator Thomas H. Brown, Jr.’s new book offers problem-solving techniques, formulas, and tabular data in a convenient, quick lookup format. Developed and expanded out of material in McGraw-Hill’s best-selling Marks’ Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers, this unique resource provides complete step-by-step help with:

  • Basic to advanced calculation procedures
  • Examples of solved problems in both U.S. customary and SI/metric units
  • Calculations for fundamental, advanced, and combined loadings on machine elements
  • Problem-solving techniques and calculations for static and dynamic design, including fatigue and column buckling
  • Advanced problems for bolted and welded connections, springs, flywheels, gear trains, and more
  • Easy-to-use tables, charts, listings, and formulas
