Mechanical Engineering Design – Richard Budynas, Nisbett Shigley’s – 7th Edition


The seventh edition of Mechanical marks a return to the basic approaches that have made this the standard in machine design for over 40 years. At the same time it has been significantly updated and modernized for today’s engineering students and professional engineers.
Working from extensive market research and reviews of the 6th edition, the new 7th edition features reduced coverage of uncertainty and statistical methods. is now treated (in chapter 2) as one of several methods available to design engineers, and statistical applications are no longer integrated throughout the text, examples and problem sets.

Other major changes include updated coverage of the design process, streamlined coverage of statistics, a more practical overview of materials and materials selection (moved to chapter 3),revised coverage of failure and fatigue, and review of basic of materials topics to make a clearer link with prerequisite courses.

Overall coverage of basic concepts has been made more clear and concise, with some advanced topics deleted, so that readers can easily navigate key topics. Problem sets have been improved, with new added to help students progressively work through them.

The has an Learning Center with several powerful components: for Machine Design (featuring highly visual MATLAB simulations and accompanying source code); the “FEPC” finite element program, with accompanying Finite Element Primer and FEM Tutorials; interactive FE Exam questions for Machine Design; and Machine Design Tutorials for study of key concepts from Parts I and II of the text. Complete Problem and PowerPoint slides of illustrations are available for instructors, under password protection. A printed Instructor’s Solutions Manual is also available, with detailed solutions to all chapter problems.
