Resources for mechanical engineers

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) has a website that includes very interesting and useful material for mechanical engineering students - and students in other engineering disciplines as well.

ASME home page:

A sub-section of the ASME website is Newsletters and Magazine, which has a variety of articles from each issue of the magazine as well as 7 Newsletters.

The articles in the Newsletters are accessible only to ASME members, but the articles in the Engineering Topics section are available online.

There a lot of engineering topics listed - from 46 engineering areas. These range from Aerospace & Defense to Workforce Development. Some of the topics are:
  • Aerospace & Defense
  • Applied Mechanics
  • Automotive Design
  • Bioengineearing
  • Business Communication
  • Computer-Aided Design
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Engineering Ethics
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Manufacturing & Processing
  • Mechatronics
  • Nanotechnology
  • Product Planning
  • Renewable energy
  • Robotics
  • Technology & Society
  • Transportation
  • Turbines
  • Uncertainty
  • Workforce Development
The topic areas:

An article I've used with my students focused on the History of Air Conditioning, which included short technical descriptions of the innovations in air conditioning over the years. I'll write about the work we did with this in my next post.
