Welcome from the editor
The ASME Journal of Mechanical Design (JMD) serves the broad design community as a venue for scholarly, archival research in all aspects of the design activity. JMD has traditionally served the ASME Design Engineering Division and its technical committees, but it welcomes contributions from all areas of design with emphasis on synthesis.
Example topics include:
The connecting thread among all these topics is the emphasis on design, rather than just analysis. Design scholarship is based on careful analysis models, whether physical, computational, or behavioral, and has design intent: creating something in the physical world we live in, rather than just analyzing what is happening in it.
This site is a communication forum for the design community, and is a companion to the ASME Journals Digital Submission site. We provide more information about the journal, its scope, practices, and philosophy; short biographies of the editorial board that serves our authors; and a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs). We continue to update the site based on your input. Welcome to the JMD community!
