Inc., 2655 Wisconsin Ave., Downers Grove, IL 60615. 2000. 176 pp. $22.95.

Published by a manufacturer of power transmission components, this reference begins with two sections that discuss basic terminology, general coupling evaluation factors, and key considerations in coupling selection. The third section covers 13 types of elastomeric couplings and eight types of metallic couplings in widespread use. The fourth section deals with selecting the right coupling for the application, with close attention to torque and torsional vibration considerations, various ways to mount couplings on shafts, guidance on coupling alignment, and balancing. Concluding sections list the various standards affecting couplings and provide a bibliography.
