Standards play a very important part in the engineering world. They supplement the design process by guiding the designer or user to ensure consistent products with safe and reliable operation. Understanding and complying with pertinent standards helps to ensure a successful design, fabrication, and operation of a product. This book introduces the concept of standards and their impact and value.
From its first issuance in 1914, ASME's legendary Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code has pioneered modern standards-development. More than 100,000 copies are in use in 100 countries around the world. The BPVC has long been considered essential within such industries as electric power-generation, petrochemical, and transportation, among others.
The ASME Journal Program has been established to further the progress of science through the sharing the latest engineering research. Each ASME Journal title publishes the highest quality peer-reviewed literature in their respective field of mechanical engineering.
ASME sponsors more than 30 conferences per year and publishes approximately 100 proceedings volumes annually. Conference topics encompass the entire spectrum of subject areas of interest to mechanical engineers and associated disciplines.
