A very good introductory book about Mechanical Design for Industrial Designers is:
- Skakoon J.G., The Elements of Mechanical Design, ASME Press, 2008.
It can be bought at Lucid or lended from the university library.
Mechanical Design presentation
The presentation I give using this book can be found here: The Elements of Mechanical Design presentation
Other good books are:
- Koster M.P., Constructieprincipes voor het nauwkeurig bewegen en positioneren, Uitgeverij Universiteit Twente, 1996.
- Beitz W., Kuettner K.H., Dubbel Taschenbuch fuer den Maschinenbau, Springer Verlag.
- Leijendeckers P.H.H.et al., Poly-Technisch Zakboekje, Reed Business Information, 2005.
Cross N., Engineering Design Methods, Strategies for Product Design, John Wiley & Sons, 1995.
Koster's book is about principles of Mechanical Design.
Dubbel is the "bible" of Mechanical Design, Engineering and Manufacturing. It is called a pocket book but it is so complete it does not fit in your pocket anymore.
The book of Leijendeckers is a small book covering a lot of things of engineering in general.
Nigel Cross covers the more general topics about design methodologies.
