ASME Journals

Each ASME journal title publishes the highest quality peer-reviewed literature in their respective field of mechanical engineering. The professionally curated content that comprises the material available through the journals on the ASME Digital Collection includes the history of mechanical engineering research as well as the cutting-edge discoveries being made today.

  • Applied Mechanics Review is the international review journal that serves as a premier venue for dissemination of material across all sub-disciplines of applied mechanics and engineering science, including fluid and solid mechanics, heat transfer, dynamics and vibration, and applications.
  • Journal of Applied Mechanics serves as a vehicle for the communication of original research results of permanent interest in all branches of mechanics.
  • Journal of Mechanical Design serves the broad design community as the venue for scholarly, archival research in all aspects of the design activity with emphasis on design synthesis.

You will find all of the ASME journals in print on the 300 level of Preston Library. Current issues are accessible via the ASME Digital Collection located in the Databases A to Z list.
