Required Text:Machine Design (2nd edition) by Robert L. Norton., Prentice-Hall, 1998, ISBN 0-13-897802-6. This book uses a program called TK-Solver which will not be used at all in MAE325. Instead, all computation will be done with Matlab.
Please report any errors you find in the textbook to firstname.lastname@example.org. We get $2.00 per error reported (real errors), 50 cents for typo like things.
