Summary:The book focuses on the role of reliability as a quantitative requirement in the design of mechanical machines and components and their constituent parts. While the author makes full use of statistical reliability concepts, all the fundamental aspects are critically reviewed before being used. Additionally, the variation in key mechanical properties of materials is treated at length. The approach is to establish as accurate a physical model of the real situation as possible and to use this as the basis of a design methodology that uses statistical representation methods
