  2. Machine Design Elements and Assemblies

    Over Michael Spektor’s illustrious career in industry and academia, he has searched for a better resource from which to teach his students, and a way to improve current texts to better reflect the proper structure of how machine elements are presented, and introduce the calculations and design considerations necessary for creating assemblies. The result is this textbook, which is the first available to students of the course Machine Design (also called “Machine Elements”) that truly prepares them to meet industry challenges by accelerating their introduction to solving real-life engineering programs. Machine Design Elements and Assemblies methodically describes the material in a way that broadens and deepens the engineering knowledge related to the design of mechanical systems, in a much more concise, less expensive package.
