A fully developed and very practical presentation of the subject of form design of machine components is provided in this book, including how to recognize what form or shapes cause what stress patterns and how to apply the information to an overall design. Techniques are presented that guide the design engineer to the correct kind of element to use without the need of calculations; how to choose shapes that produce efficient stress patterns. Also included is a brief review of strength/design procedures; the nature of efficient and inefficient stress patterns are covered, general principles of component design, optimizing strength-to-weight ratios, considerations for buckling and impact and the design of joints. Written in a manner that enables the designer to use the methods easily, explanations are provided of why certain designs are better than others. In addition to this, the book offers a collection of design techniques that can only be learned through extensive experience.

Through illustrations, tables, and straightforward calculations this book shows how to design improved and less expensive machine, structural, and architectural parts. Offers a wealth of design techniques usually gained only through extensive experience. Explains how to synthesize forms of parts so as to reduce weight and maximize strength, and reveals concepts and principles, in an easy-to-follow manner, which can be used by the designer in the initial phases of design without having to use design analysis. Chapters cover free body diagrams, force flow concepts, efficient and inefficient stress patterns, form design (including the tetrahedron-triangle principle, the uniform shear or hollow shaft principle, the mating surface principle, and the load lever principle), tension, compression and bending, torsion, contact stress, resistance to buckling and impact loading, joints, and structural efficiency. Seven appendixes provide information on physical constants of materials, SI prefixes, units and symbols, conversion factors, properties of sections, and bending diagrams and formulas.
