Machine Design: An Integrated Approach – Robert L. Norton – 3rd Edition


presents the subject matter in an up-to-date and thorough manner with a strong emphasis. This textbook emphasizes both failure theory and analysis as well as emphasizing the synthesis and aspects of elements.

The points out the commonality of the analytical approaches needed to design a wide variety of elements and emphasizes the use of -aided as an to the design and analysis of these classes of . About 100 new will be added throughout the book, and certain topics are updated and .

The new 3/e has revised and expanded chapter problem set–231 new problems have been added. 88 Assignments are also included to give readers an in-depth look at mechanism design and analysis procedures in a realistic format. Coverage of compliant mechanisms and MEMS has been added in Chapter 2; a section entitled “Some Useful Mechanisms” is now in Chapter 3; treatment of cams in Chapters 8 has been condensed and modernized. Information on transmissions and engine has been enhanced and expanded as well.
