This edition of the Mechanical Design Engineering Handbook has been extensively updated. Each chapter has been reviewed and developed.Chapters 1 and 2dealing with the design process and specification have been updated with a development of the total design process and an introduction to project management. 

Chapter 3has been revised substantially incorporating developments in creativity and ideation processes relevant to engineering.Chapter 4has been further developed to illustrate the scope and context of machine elements. 

Chapters 5 and 6introducing the first of the machine elements to be considered in detail, bearings, have been expanded to include flow charts illustrating the design of boundary lubricated, hydrodynamic and ball bearings. 

The introductory and extended worked examples have been retained throughout the chapters on machine elements in the book to enable the reader to follow the detailed analysis and associated design decisions.

Chapter 7addressing shaft design has been expanded to include consideration of a factor of safety according to the DE Goodman, DE Gerber, DE ASME elliptic and DE Soderberg criteria.

Chapters 8–11introducing gears have been expanded to include flow charts for the selection of spur gears, and the calculation of bending and contact stresses, and the design of gear sets using the AGMA equations.

 Similarly Chapter 13 introducing belt and chain drives has been extended with flow charts for the selection and design of wedge and synchronous belts, and roller chain drives. Chapter 14 on seals has been updated to include additional examples.

Chapter 15 has been extended to include selection and design flow charts for helical compression spring and helical extension spring design.

Chapters 16–18 have been extended with additional examples of various fastener, wire rope, and pneumatic and hydraulic technologies, respectively. Three short case studies have been included in Chapter 19illustrating the importance of a detailed consideration of tolerancing in precision engineering.

Chapter 20is a new chapter providing an overview of a diverse range of machine elements as building blocks for mechanism design. Throughout the text an additional 100 or so images have been included in order to aid the reader in becoming familiar with the technology being considered. 

Mechanical engineering design is an engaging subject area with many applications and this major revision has been a pleasurable undertaking enabling implementation of many updates from my engineering and design practice and associated interactions. I hope this text is able to aid the reader in the development of understanding of the principles and associated technology and in its implementation in worthwhile innovations and applications.
