Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) has become accepted around the world as the international symbolic language that allows engineers and machinists to use engineering drawings to communicate from the design stage through manufacturing and inspection. Its advantages are uniformity in design practice, ensured interchangeability, consistent interpretation, and maximum tolerance allocation. With GD&T, design requirements can be specified explicitly and the latest gaging techniques can be accommodated, contributing to higher productivity and less rework and scrap. Deductively organized, this book is a complete on-the-job reference that provides a thorough understanding to the complex ASME Y14.5M-1994 Dimensioning and Tolerancing standard. Uses a building-block approach with examples (some dimensioned and toleranced in inches and some in millimeters) to illustrate each concept. Reinforces the explanations with end-of-chapter self evaluation exercises (the answers to all questions and problems are contained in the back of the book). Includes over one hundred drawings that illustrate concepts under discussion. Provides the information needed to become conversant in the techniques of GD&T and how to smoothly integrate this knowledge into engineering design and modern inspection systems.
FUNDAMENTALS OF GEOMETRIC DIMENSIONING AND TOLERANCING 3E is a unique book that meets the needs of your students in industrial technology, CAD, engineering technology, and manufacturing technology. This book clearly organizes geometric dimensioning and tolerancing fundamentals into small, logical units for step-by-step understanding. Measurable performance objectives help you and your students assess their progress. Discussion questions promote interaction and higher-order thinking, and practice problems ensure thorough understanding of the concepts presented. FUNDAMENTALS OF GEOMETRIC DIMENSIONING AND TOLERANCING 3E defines and fully encompasses the revised ANSI/ASME Y14.5M-2009 to keep your students current on these important industry standards. This book is cited by top industry professionals as meeting the highest standards for a GD&T book!

This sourcebook provides a thorough explanation of ASME Y 14.5, the geometric dimensioning and tolerancing standard which is used primarily to communicate engineering configurations from the designer to the manufacturer. Heavily illustrated with engineering configurations, this book includes practical examples to assess individual knowledge as well as exercises based on the Frequency Asked Questions gathered over the authors' 26 years as an educator.
AN UP-TO-DATE GUIDE TO GEOMETRIC DIMENSIONING AND TOLERANCING Written in accordance with the latest revision of the geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) stanedard, ASME Y14.5-2009, this book teaches the principles and practical applications of GD&T in an easy-to-understand manner. Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing for Mechanical Design, Second Edition, begins the discussion of each control with a definition, and then describes how the control is specified, interpreted, and inspected. Detailed drawings illustrate the topics discussed. Study questions and problems at the end of each chapter emphasize key concepts and serve as a self-test. Ensure the proper assembly of parts, improve quality, and reduce costs with help from this authoritative resource. Coverage includes: * Dimensioning and tolerancing fundamentals * Symbols, terms, and rules * Datums * Form--flatness, straightness, circularity and cylindricity * Orientation--perpendicularity, parallelism, and angularity * Position--general, location, and coaxially * Concentricity and symmetry * Runout * Profile * Graphic analysis * Strategy for tolerancing parts
Applications and Techniques for Use in Design: Manufacturing, and Inspection

Category: Technology & Engineering
Explaining the symbology of dimensioning and tolerancing and introducing a step-by-step system for geometric definition, this book provides examples for the application of geometric controls. The author breaks down the language of geometric product definition into a series of steps that consist of significant questions to be asked at any point in the product definition. He addresses functional requirements and manufacturing techniques, measurement, inspection, and gaging procedures. The book illustrates how symbology is best utilized, in what order it should be applied, and how each geometric control anticipates, integrates, and complements all other geometric controls on a part and in an assembly.
