About the Authors
  • Written in a user-friendly manner, the text provides detailed discussions on design principles of belts, pulleys, ropes, chain drives and gear boxes. The text being a follow-up to the first volume, discusses properties, types, advantages and selection aspects of belt drives, flat belt pulleys, grooved pulleys and rope drives. It then explains construction aspects, classification, properties and the design procedure of important bearings including hydrodynamic and rolling bearings. It goes on to discuss several types of I.C. engine parts including cylinder, piston, connecting rod, crank shaft, valve gears, flywheels, clutches and brakes. Advantages and applications of worm and worm wheel drives and pressure vessels are also included.

    • Discusses drives, bearings and I.C. engine parts in detail
    • Contains in depth analysis of different types of gears such as spur, helical and bevel gears
    • Construction aspects, classification, design procedures and selection parameters of hydrodynamic and rolling bearings are covered comprehensively
