Shigley’s Mechanical Engineering Design is intended for students beginning the study of mechanical engineering design. Students will find that the text inherently directs them into familiarity with both the basics of design decisions and the standards of industrial components. It combines the straightforward focus on fundamentals that instructors have come to expect, with a modern emphasis on design and new applications. This edition maintains the well-designed approach that has made this book the standard in machine design for nearly 50 years.

Mechanical design is a complex process, requiring many skills. Extensive relationships need to be subdivided into a series of simple tasks. The complexity of the process requires a sequence in which ideas are introduced and iterated.

We first address the nature of design in general, and then mechanical engineering design in particular. Design is an iterative process with many interactive phases. Many resources exist to support the designer, including many sources of information and an abundance of computational design tools. Design engineers need not only develop competence in their field but they must also cultivate a strong sense of responsibility and professional work ethic.

There are roles to be played by codes and standards, ever-present economics, safety, and considerations of product liability. The survival of a mechanical component is often related through stress and strength. Matters of uncertainty are ever-present in engineering design and are typically addressed by the design factor and factor of safety, either in the form of a deterministic (absolute) or statistical sense. The latter, statistical approach, deals with a design’s reliability and requires good statistical data.

In mechanical design, other considerations include dimensions and tolerances, units, and calculations.

This book consists of four parts. Part 1, Basics, begins by explaining some differences between design and analysis and introducing some fundamental notions and approaches to design. It continues with three chapters reviewing material properties, stress analysis, and stiffness and deflection analysis, which are the principles necessary for the remainder of the book.

Part 2, Failure Prevention, consists of two chapters on the prevention of failure of mechanical parts. Why machine parts fail and how they can be designed to prevent failure are difficult questions, and so we take two chapters to answer them, one on preventing failure due to static loads, and the other on preventing fatigue failure due to time-varying, cyclic loads.

In Part 3, Design of Mechanical Elements, the concepts of Parts 1 and 2 are applied to the analysis, selection, and design of specific mechanical elements such as shafts, fasteners, weldments, springs, rolling contact bearings, film bearings, gears, belts, chains, and wire ropes.

Part 4, Special Topics, provides introductions to two important methods used in mechanical design, finite element analysis and geometric dimensioning and tolerancing. This is optional study material, but some sections and examples in Parts 1 to 3 demonstrate the use of these tools.

There are two appendixes at the end of the book. Appendix A contains many useful tables referenced throughout the book. Appendix B contains answers to selected end-of-chapter problems.

Richard G. Budynas is Professor Emeritus of the Kate Gleason College of Engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology. He has over 40 years experience in teaching and practicing mechanical engineering design. He is the author of a McGraw-Hill textbook, Advanced Strength and Applied Stress Analysis, Second Edition; and co-author of a McGraw-Hill reference book, Roark’s Formulas for Stress and Strain, Seventh Edition. He was awarded the BME of Union College, MSME of the University of Rochester, and the Ph.D. of the University of Massachusetts. He is a licensed Professional Engineer in the state of New York.

J. Keith Nisbett is an Associate Professor and Associate Chair of Mechanical Engineering at the Missouri University of Science and Technology. He has over 25 years of experience with using and teaching from this classic textbook. As demonstrated by a steady stream of teaching awards, including the Governor’s Award for Teaching Excellence, he is devoted to finding ways of communicating concepts to the students. He was awarded the BS, MS, and Ph.D. of the University of Texas at Arlington.
