The primary goal of Design of Machine Elements is to provide comprehensive design methods with various other important topics like stress concentration and its mitigation the concept of fatigue strength. In the later chapters of the book design of keys is presented along with cotter and knuckle joints riveted joints, boiler joints, lozenge joints and power screws design. The book discusses design concepts and the factor of safety. There are more than 750 solved examples along with unsolved problems for the students to practise. The wide coverage of the topics and a large number of solved examples will benefit students preparing for professional examinations.
