Book for mechanical design calculations

Question by j

Can anyone suggest books for mechanical and possibly electrical design? For example, a design of an electrical pump providing a given flow rate, the procedure of selecting the motor size, etc. Taking a set of requirements and designing a solution with calculations. Essentially a book of design projects to learn from.
Thanks.

Marks' Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers?

I have an older copy from the 60's (I think). I'm not sure what new content has been added in the more recent editions.
I don't think it is a "book of projects", but it does give useful advice on how to specify components, and perform calculations.

I've always liked this site: http://www-mdp.eng.cam.ac.uk/web/library/enginfo/textbooks_dvd_only/DAN/index.html

There is a very good book from Roloff/Matek, in the off-chance you speak german or dutch ;-)
