Machine design is the art of creating a new

element or a group of mechanical elements to
perform a prescribed task independently or in
harmony with other elements.

This task may involve power transmission,

generation or dissipation, energy storage, load.
support, part or system protection or merely
appearance purposes.

Design steps

M.Atia 5
Definition of problem
The function, of the element
Its geometric relation to other elements
The loads (static and. dynamic) imposed, on the element
the kind of environment temperature, humidity, dirt, corrosive elements, to
which the element will be subjected.
The stability of environmental conditions and how they would change
The required serviceable life of the element.
The available production means
The available materials and. their physical and mechanical properties.
The limits set on the production cost
The weight limitations, If any. Imposed. on the design.
Interchangeability of production units
The consequences or failure
The limits on probability of survival

Codes and standards
A standard
is a set of specifications for parts, materials, or processes
intended to achieve uniformity, efficiency, and a specified
One of the important purposes of a standard is to place a limit
on the number of items in the specifications so as to provide a
reasonable inventory of tooling, sizes, shapes, and varieties.
A code
is a set of specifications for the analysis, design, manufacture,
and construction of something.
The purpose of a code is to achieve a specified degree of
safety, efficiency, and performance or quality.
