American Society of Mechanical Engineers is a not-for-profit membership organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment, and skills development across all engineering disciplines, toward a goal of helping the global engineering community develop solutions to benefit lives and livelihoods. Founded in 1880 by a small group of leading industrialists, ASME has grown through the decades to include more than 100,000 members in 140+ countries. Thirty-two thousand of these members are students.From college students and early-career engineers to project managers, corporate executives, researchers and academic leaders, ASME's members are as diverse as the engineering community itself. ASME serves this wide-ranging technical community through quality programs in continuing education, training and professional development, codes and standards, research, conferences and publications, government relations and other forms of outreach.Publications Offering some of the engineering profession’s most esteemed publications. Publications that serve the mechanical engineering community by sharing innovative research, inspiring ideas and encouraging multidisciplinary collaboration.• Journals. More than 2,000 published papers in ASME Journals each year. ASME Journals provide essential resources for engineers looking to keep abreast of the latest research, current theory, practice, and application.• Books. A collection of over 200 digital books. A repository of works covering established and emerging areas of interest to mechanical engineers, including new and classic titles on design, manufacturing, energy, robotics, bioengineering, pipelines, pressure tech, and more!• Proceedings. Complete compilations of conference-based, peer-reviewed technical papers The collection spans several years and includes print and digital versions of comprehensive peer-reviewed papers on a broad range of Conference subjects that are of interest to mechanical engineers and those in related disciplines.
