From the Back Cover
To solve mechanical component problems, you need a solid understanding of the fundamentals of component design as well as good engineering judgment. Juvinall and Marshek s Fundamentals of Machine Component Design, Fourth Edition will help you develop both, so you can apply your knowledge, skills, and imagination to professional engineering problems.
Now revised and updated, this Fourth Edition continues to focus on the fundamentals of component design free body diagrams, force flow concepts, failure theories, and fatigue design, with applications to fasteners, springs, bearings, gears, shafts, clutches, and brakes. A proven problem–solving methodology guides you through the process of accurately formulating problems and clearly presenting solutions. Graphical procedures help you visualize the solution format, develop added insight about the significance of the results, and determine how the design can be improved.
Filled with solved examples, problems, and handy tables, this text will be a valuable reference throughout your academic and professional careers.
New to the Fourth Edition:
- New additions to Chapter 1 include a hierarchy of design that sets design guidelines for minimizing risk as well as the categorization of the documentation of a product design.
- A new Section 3.14 on the Engineering Material Selection Process.
- Expanded Section 6.4 on Fracture Mechanics Applications.
- Eight new figures that show curves of stress intensity factor with an inset for the corresponding geometry.
- Two new sections in Chapter 8, Fatigue: Fatigue Crack Growth and General Approach for Fatigue Design.
- New appendices on materials subsets and materials uses, including processing methods, joinability, and relations between failure modes and material properties.
- Updated and additional websites to provide more engineering resources.
- New and revised worked examples and homework problems.

Some annoying things about this book:
-It spends too much time covering prereq materials. It wastes too much space briefly covering mechanics of materials and material science.
-It makes assumptions out of nowhere with no rationale as to why. The author just cites a book that he read and just says to use this coefficient and account for its effect in order to solve the problem. That gets super frustrating when you're trying to figure things out for the first time.
The first section of the book functions as a fast-paced review of the aforementioned prerequisites. Don't expect elementary straight numerical problems even in the introductory section. The author gets down to business immediately with example problems that involve actual mechanical devices. The example problem solutions are excellent with separate solution sections labeled "Known","Find", "Schematic and given data", "Assumptions", "Analysis", and "Comment". Each chapter has solutions to a few of the many exercises. Of particular interest in section one is chapter 8,"Fatigue", and chapter 9, "Surface Damage". Chapter 8 is important because it contains a simplified, condensed, and introductory version of fatigue design and fatigue crack growth, and is probably going to be new material for many readers. Chapter 9 deals with the various kinds of surface deterioration in machine components. This is important because more machine parts fail because of surface damage than from actual breakage.
Part two of the book is concerned with the application of the fundamentals of mechanical engineering to specific machine components. In practice, problems involving the design, analysis, or application of machine members can seldom be solved by applying the fundamentals alone. Also, there is seldom just one right answer. This second section of the book gives the engineer exposure with these types of problems. Each chapter in this section deals with design issues in particular types of mechanical devices - springs, gears, bearings, clutches, brakes, etc. The final chapter of the section is a case study of the first commercially successful automotive automatic transmission, drawing on the knowledge of all of the individual devices studied in previous chapters of part two.
The updates to this fourth edition versus the third edition are:
* Chapter 1 has some new material including a hierarchy of design that sets design guidelines for minimizing risk as well as the documenting of a new product.
* Section 3.14 "Engineering Material Selection Process" is new material.
* Section 6.4 on "Fracture Mechanics - Applications" has been expanded.
* There are two new sections in Chapter 8 entitled "Fatigue Crack Growth" and "General Approach for Fatigue Design".
* There is more reference to various websites in this edition.
* Both the example and homework problems have been revised.
The third and previous edition of this book is only two years older than the current fourth edition, and actually contains about 100 pages more material than the fourth edition. Given the high cost of the fourth edition, and the fact that the third edition can be obtained used rather inexpensively, you might want to consider getting the third edition of this book if you do not consider this list of new features essential. A good companion to this book is the latest edition of "Machinery's Handbook" since it has equations and tables in a very concise format. However, I highly recommend you get a copy of either the third or fourth edition of this book too. It has a wealth of material on mechanical design, and if you are already a mechanical engineer, it will make you fall in love with the discipline all over again.
If you are still in school get this book early. It might save you some headaches down the line.
