Abstract
The design of machine elements such as belts,

chain and sprocket, gears, cams, bearings, etc.,

is a complex procedure. The analytical procedure

to design such elements is non-linear, often based

upon statistical information and frequently

heuristic in nature. The procedure is iterative

and involves choosing various weighing factors

based upon the application and usage. The

procedure is greatly influenced by a designer's

intuitive skill and experience. Due to the

increased popularity of the Internet as a source

of information, a number of machine element

manufacturers have published design procedures

for the design of machine elements. Here, an

attempt has been made to arrange all the formulae,

tables, charts, standards, and web resources,

which are inherent to the design process,

to best aid the designer.

A number of computer applications for machine

design have been developed in the recent past

but are limited in scope and utility as they tend

to allow the designer to change only certain

parameters while assigning fixed values to most

parameters. This stifles the designer's creativity

and diverts focus on the computer program rather

than the physical problem. An attempt has been

made here to allow the designer flexibility in

design and increased productivity, by keeping a

record of the various steps undertaken by the

designer, in a particular design process.
