Engineering Design by George Dieter, Linda Schmidt

By George Dieter, Linda Schmidt

Dieter's Engineering layout 4/e represents a massive replace of this vintage textbook for senior layout classes. As in earlier variants, Engineering Design presents a broader review of themes than so much layout texts and includes even more prescriptive tips on the best way to perform layout. Dieter focuses on fabric choice in addition to easy methods to enforce the layout process.

Engineering Design offers the senior mechanical engineering scholars with a pragmatic realizing of the layout approach. it's written from the point of view that layout is the important task of the engineering career, and it truly is extra all for constructing attitudes and ways than in featuring layout thoughts and instruments.

Engineering Design offers a practical realizing of the engineering layout strategy. The ebook offers intimately (Chapters 1 via nine) an eight-step approach that provides prescriptive advice to the scholar from challenge definition via aspect layout. Chapters 10 via sixteen current extra particular therapy of speciality subject matters (design for X). The textual content is meant for use in both a junior or senior engineering direction with an built-in hands-on layout venture.

Planning for Manufacture A great deal of detailed planning must be done to provide for the production of the design. A method of manufacture must be established for each component in the system. As a usual first step, a process sheet is created; it contains a sequential list of all manufacturing operations that must be performed on the component. Also, it specifies the form and condition of the material and the tooling and production machines that will be used. 12 High costs may indicate the need for a change in material or a basic change in the design.

An important activity at every step in the design process, but especially as the design nears completion, is checking. In general, there are two types of checks that can be made: mathematical checks and engineering-sense checks. Mathematical checks are concerned with checking the arithmetic and the equations for errors in the conversion of units used in the analytical model. Incidentally, the frequency of careless math errors is a good reason why you should adopt the practice of making all your design calculations in a bound notebook.

Energy costs, once nearly ignored in design, are now among the most prominent design considerations. Design for materials recycling also is becoming an important consideration. The life cycle of production and consumption that is characteristic of all products is illustrated by the materials cycle shown in Fig. 6.
