Focusing on how a machine “feels” and behaves while operating, Machine Elements: Ufe and Design seeks to impart both intellectual and emotional comprehension regarding the “life” of a machine. It presents a detailed description of how machine elements function, seeking to form a sympathetic attitude toward the machine and to ensure its well-being through more careful and proper design. The book is divided into three sections. The first covers microscopic deformations and displacements in permanent connections and within the bodies of stressed parts. The second section examines machine elements and units. The third addresses strength calculations and life prediction of machine parts. The authors address parts and units common to all machines, and they present realworld calculations and examples.
