COVID-19 Response and Call for Papers
Although the journal is committing to reviewing and processing papers as expeditiously as possible, we understand that members of our community including editors, authors, and reviewers may be impacted severely by the pandemic. If you are experiencing any difficulties with journal related workflow we encourage you to communicate with the journal Editor or Associate Editor(s) so that accommodations and/or time extensions can be arranged.
To assist researchers and those working to bring this health crisis to an end, ASME has made all COVID-19 relevant journal and conference content available at no charge. We encourage JMD authors to contribute articles to COVID-19 related subjects. Such papers will still be submitted to JMD, going through an expedited review process, and published with a link to the ASME COVID-19 Resource virtual issue at https://asmedigitalcollection.asme.org/journals/pages/covid19resource

This paper considers systems with ﬁeld constraints, when elements cannot be placed in special regions such as a high-temperature ﬁeld, a high-pressure ﬁeld, a high magnetic ﬁeld, etc. Fields place constraints on architectural modularity choices and provide creative opportunities for the design of complex systems. This paper develops practical design guidelines for modularity by considering ﬁeld constraints and highlighting on a system block diagram which elements are within a high field region. Read more...

Many modern products, such as automobiles, aircrafts, laptops and smartphones, are engineered systems. The performance, function, and architecture of an engineered system continuously changes and improves over time. For example, cell phones of the 1990’s were limited to phone calls and text messages. Today's cell phones are computers capable of cinematography and reading the news. Research in engineered system evolution goes beyond tracking and predicting the technical performance and the functional and architectural changes of existing engineered systems. This research also studies how and why these changes occur and searches for causal factors behind these evolutions. Read more...
