Fundamentals of Machine Component Design, 7th Australia & New Zealand Edition

ISBN: 9781119594284

Juvinall and Marshek’s Fundamentals of Machine Component Design continues to focus on the fundamentals of component design — free body diagrams, force flow concepts, failure theories, and fatigue design, with applications to fasteners, springs, bearings, gears, clutches, and brakes.  Problem-solving skills are developed by the implementation of a proven methodology which provides a structure for accurately formulating problems and clearly presenting solutions.  The seventh edition includes additional coverage of composites, the material selection process, and wear/wear theory, along with new and updated examples and homework problems.

Solidly focused on practical applications of fundamental theory, this text helps students develop the ability to conceptualise designs, interpret test results, and facilitate improvement. Clear presentation reinforces central ideas with multiple case studies, in-class exercises, homework problems, computer software data sets, and access to supplemental internet resources, while appendices provide extensive reference material on processing methods, joinability, failure modes, and material properties to aid student comprehension and encourage self-study.

Some of the additions the the seventh edition include: Problem Solving Methodology & Graphical Procedures. The problem-solving methodology used in the text helps students to formulate machine component problems accurately and to present solutions clearly. The graphical procedures employed help students to understand and visualize what is going on, develop added insight about the significance of the results, and think about how the design might be improved, Emphasizes the Basic Concepts of Fracture Mechanics. This section includes stress-intensity factor charts for eight common geometric configurations. Introductory fracture mechanics problems support understanding these critical concepts


  • Details the basic concepts of fracture mechanics, including fatigue coverage, crack growth under alternating loads, and stress intensity factors.
  • Addresses contemporary safety issues based on real-world case studies.
  • Discusses the material selection process, including composite materials and other modern technologies.
  • Outlines wear theory and the use of wear models in the analysis of machine parts.
  • Examines the fundamental concepts of mechanics, material strength, and material properties.
  • Applies key concepts to specific machine components.
