Written using both imperial and metric systems, this book presents numerous case studies relevant to both industrial and academic domains. These studies, detailed according to class and industry, focus on real projects and are provided along with succinct solutions and comments.

This work is essentially a summary of the mechanical design course. A wide range of singular examples and mechanisms are provided, and emphasis is placed on the dichotomy between material and geometry which lies at the center of resistance calculations. The analysis tools used throughout the book integrate the Cd CF requirements into the practical application of projects. This is essential for the optimization of the design applied.

The educational benefits of this pedagogical work are illustrated in the practical case studies. However, these studies are not only useful for students and teachers, but also for specialists and consultants.
