Book Description

The Engineering Council (UK) have reported an encouraging increase in the applications for Engineering Technician (Eng. Tech) registration, both from applicants following a work-based learning program and individuals without formal qualifications but who have verifiable competence through substantial working experiences and self-study.

Design Engineer's Case Studies and Examples has been written for these young engineers. The contents have been selected on typical subjects that developing engineers may be expected to cover in their professional career and gives solutions to typical problems that may arise in mechanical design.

The subjects covered include the following:

  • Introduction to stress calculations
  • Basic shaft design
  • Beams under bending
  • Keys and spline strength calculations
  • Columns and struts
  • Gears
  • Material selection
  • Conversions and general tables

"This book is of the quality, practicality, and usefulness as his earlier text on mechanical design. Material is presented in a manner such that it can be very useful for students in undergraduate courses, those preparing for professional registration, and practicing engineers. Keith provides the equations necessary perform an evaluation; then, includes examples showing the methodology for applying those equations along with the thought process required to achieve a correct answer."
—Richard E. Dippery, Jr., Ph.D., P.E., Kettering University

"Design Engineer’s Case Studies and Examples provides a concise compilation of a wide scope of material invaluable to anyone encountering mechanical design applications. It will prove a handy reference for both the practicing professional and the beginning student."
