The fourth edition of Juvinall and Marshek's, Fundamentals of Machine Component Design 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, clutches, and brakes. A proven problem-solving methodology guides you through the process of accurately formulating problems and clearly presenting solutions.

This revision includes new and revised homework problems as well as new and revised worked examples. Several new sections have been added throughout the text.

References have been updated throughout the text. There are several new appendices on materials uses, including processing methods, joinability, and relation between failure modes and material properties.
