Fundamentals of Machine Elements – Bernard J. Hamrock – 1st Edition


Fundamentals of Elements, second edition provides undergraduates and praticing engineers with a clear understanding of the theory and applications behind the of elements.
The text is rich with examples and homework designed to test understanding and build their skills in analysis and design. The design process is stressed throughout the through the use of Case Studies, open-ended problems, design procedure boxes, and in-text discussion.

The book is divided into two parts: Part I (chs 1-8) covers fundamental background topics, and Part II (chs 9-20), presents the design of various machine components. Unique coverage of MEMS devices is provided in chapter 20, reflecting the importance of microsystems in today’s industry.

The book is complemented by extensive resources for instructors and .
