About this book


Good design is a crucial factor in both the performance of a product and its cost of manufacture. As such, the teaching of design skills is becoming an increasingly important aspect of engineering degree courses. Form, Structure and Mechanism, written for the engineering undergraduate studying a design course, draws on the engineering theory taught in the early part of the degree and shows how it can be applied to challenging and realistic design problems.
