Shigley’s Mechanical Engineering Design, 10th ed.

Richard G. Budynas and J. Keith Nisbett

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.
The tenth edition of Shigley’s Mechanical Engineering Design maintains the approach that has made this book the standard in machine design for nearly 50 years.
Some of the statistical material contained in the previous edition was eliminated in the 10th edition. This includes much of Chapter 20, Statistical Considerations, and Sec. 6-17, Fatigue Failure Resulting from Variable Loading. However, specific statistical material pertinent to the 10th edition was retained and integrated within the sections that utilize statistics. A few examples are:
• The mathematical relationship between the design factor and reliability is covered in the first chapter of Introduction to Mechanical Design where the design factor and reliability are defined and discussed.
• In Sec. 2-2, The Statistical Significance of Material Properties, is totally self-contained.
• The statistical Weibull distribution is necessary in the chapter on Rolling-Contact Bearings and is completely contained within this chapter.
This web site contains Sec. 6-17 and Chapter 20 of the 9th edition in their entirety including the end-of-chapter problems. The authors hope that this assists any instructor who desires to continue presenting this material. We are also available to answer any questions at: Richard Budynas or Keith Nisbett. We sincerely hope that you find this material useful.
