Description / Abstract:

Best practices for developing and implementing environmentally friendly mechanical designs The first volume of the Wiley Series in Environmentally Conscious Engineering, Environmentally Conscious Mechanical Design, gives you the tools to minimize the negative environmental impacts throughout the entire life cycle of a product, by addressing these impacts early in the design phase. Each chapter has been authored by one or more leading experts. Based on their own research and design experience, these experts provide a suite of tools and best practices for planning and implementing environmentally friendly designs that meet regulations. Moreover, you learn how to satisfy business objectives, such as minimizing cost and maximizing design utility, while meeting environmental objectives at the same time. Chapters include: Design for Environment (DfE) strategies, practices, guidelines, methods, and tools Product Design for Sustainability: A New Assessment Methodology and Case Studies Life Cycle Design Reverse Engineering Design for Reliability Design for Maintainability Reuse and Recycling Technologies Design for Remanufacturing Processes Materials Selection for Green Design Employing TQM in Environmentally Conscious Design Throughout the volume, examples and case studies serve as blueprints, demonstrating how designs are devised and executed. Figures illustrate key design principles, and tables provide at-a-glance summaries of key data. Finally, references at the end of each chapter enable you to investigate individual topics in greater depth. Turn to all of the books in the Wiley Series in Environmentally Conscious Engineering for the most cutting-edge, environmentally friendly engineering practices and technologies.
