Geometric Tolerancing Standard to Machine Design : A Design-for-Fit Approach, Hardback Book

Geometric Tolerancing Standard to Machine Design : A Design-for-Fit Approach Hardback



This book is for students enrolled in undergraduate mechanical engineering, or similar, programs.

The material presented is based on nearly thirty years of class-tested lecture notes for courses on the applications of geometric tolerancing for designers.

The book’s emphasis is on fit requirements for machine components, as fit assurance makes up the majority of challenging applications in tolerancing.

For design engineers, knowing how to apply geometric tolerances has been a challenge even for engineers who have practiced geometric tolerancing for a long time.

The syntax and meaning of geometric tolerancing statements can be learned easily and quickly, but knowing how to use them correctly is much more difficult.  In the Design-for-Fit approach, the presentation starts with the geometric requirements for various kinds of fit and then presents the geometric tolerance statements necessary to achieve those fits.
