The purpose of this book is to provide both the student and young professional
design engineer with an overall guide to the amount of work involved in the design of
a manually operated automotive gearbox, and the problems that can be encountered
both during the design stages and in operation.
‘Design’ is one of those words that means all things to all people. Every manufactured thing, from
the most lyrical of ladies’ hats to the greasiest of gearboxes, qualifies, in some sense or other, as a
design. It can mean yet more. Nature, to some is Divine Design; to others it is design by Natural
Selection, the ultimate genetic algorithm. The reader will agree that it is necessary to narrow the
field, at least a little.
