ASME Mission, To serve our diverse global communities by advancing disseminating. and applying engineering knowledge for improving the quality of life and. communicating the excitement of engineering,ASME Vision. ASME the American Society of Mechanical Engineers will be the essential. resource for mechanical engineers and other technical professionals throughout. the world for solutions that benefit humankind,SME is a not for profit membership. ASME HELPS THE GLOBAL organization that enables collaboration. knowledge sharing career enrichment and, ENGINEERING COMMUNITY skills development across all engineering.
disciplines Founded in 1880 by a small,DEVELOP SOLUTIONS TO. group of leading industrialists ASME has, REAL WORLD CHALLENGES grown through the decades to include. more than 120 000 members in over, FACING ALL PEOPLE AND 140 countries around the globe The. membership includes a wide diversity of, OUR PLANET technical disciplines who represent all. facets of the technical communities, ASME s diverse members range from college students and early career.
engineers to project managers corporate executives researchers and academic. leaders ASME serves this wide ranging technical community through quality. programs in continuing education training and professional development. standards and certification research conferences and publications government. relations and other forms of outreach, Many engineers join ASME for career enrichment lifelong learning and the. opportunity to network with professionals of like minded interests Others. become active in local sections or in ASME s administrative structure of boards. and committees providing leadership and expertise to the Society and the. profession at large, The governance of the Society is the responsibility of member elected. governors who volunteer their vast knowledge and expertise to the organization. The board of governors and other volunteer leaders of ASME work in. collaboration with a professional staff to shape the Society s programs and. strategies and make them available to engineers throughout the world ASME. administers its programs through offices and institutes in the United States. Belgium China and India and through various committees and groups to ensure. that the myriad technical interests of its members and the global engineering. community are met,More information about ASME can be obtained from. http www asme org about asme,A S T R A T E G I C R OAD MAP GUID E S A SME. ASME strategically aligns its programs and initiatives to focus on three main. organizational priorities energy engineering workforce development and. global impact in an effort to provide relevant knowledge based resources to. the broad spectrum of ASME members and constituents. In energy ASME is serving as an essential energy technology resource and. leading advocate for balanced energy policies In engineering workforce. development ASME fosters a broader competent vibrant and more diverse. engineering workforce with improved retention in both the profession and. ASME over all career stages, And in the area of global impact ASME is committed to delivering locally.
relevant engineering resources to advance public safety and quality of life. around the world, Among many examples of the Society s growing outreach in the global arena. is Engineering for Change E4C E4C is a dynamic community of engineers. technologists social scientists NGOs local governments and community. advocates whose mission is to improve people s lives in communities around. the world E4C features an open innovative and user friendly online platform. that facilitates collaboration and knowledge exchange for the development of. appropriate solutions to issues such as sanitation access to clean water energy. transportation food education and housing,More information about E4C can be obtained from. https www engineeringforchange org,ASME S ROLE IN THE GLOBALIZATION. OF CODES AND STANDARDS,by Donald R Frikken P E Becht Engineering Company. Movement to harmonization,of standards requirements has.
taken on greater interest as,companies continue to merge or. expand operations across international,boundaries helped by regional trade. agreements such as the North American,Free Trade Agreement NAFTA and. those established by the European Union,EU which have facilitated international mergers. through the lowering of tariffs on imports, The companies involved in these consolidations or expansions are used to selling.
to just one market find themselves selling to global markets The standards for. products in these markets are often different which complicates manufacturing. procedures Local laws may require the use of a particular standard yet these. laws are viewed by the World Trade Organization WTO as technical barriers to. trade and WTO member countries are charged with reducing these and other. barriers to free global trade, What is the best way for standards developing organizations like ASME and. for users of standards to find a solution Possible approaches are to adopt a. prevalent standard to perform a comparison of standards requirements to. identify areas of possible convergence or to develop an umbrella standard that. references other regional and national standards On new emerging topics or. technologies a global consensus standard may possibly be developed from. scratch ASME is involved in helping promote whichever approach best serves a. specific industry and the users of the applicable ASME standards. ASME standards have changed over the years to include new construction. materials to address new topics and to incorporate new calculation methods As. these changes continue to be introduced global developments bring even more. change requiring greater flexibility and adaptation from industry. ELEVATORS ESCALATORS AND MOVING WALKWAYS,by Jim Coaker Coaker Company PC.

For more than a century ASME PTC tests have provided results with the highest. level of accuracy based on current engineering knowledge and practices. and taking into account the costs of the tests and the value of the information. obtained All ASME codes are developed using input from a range of parties. who may be interested in the code and or in the associated equipment or. process Codes have the force of a legal document when cited in contracts as. they frequently are for determining the method by which equipment performs. as guaranteed, PTCs are used by equipment owners equipment suppliers and test engineers. ASME PTCs protect users from poorly performing products and enable suppliers. to compete fairly by offering reliable products Performance test codes provide. a level playing field for both manufacturers and users of the equipment or. systems Purchase specifications are greatly strengthened by citing the results. of PTC tests When buying new equipment purchasers may specify that the. equipment guarantee will be based on the results of a specific ASME PTC test. Design engineers consult PTC documents to ensure that proper instrument. connections will be available Test engineers install the required instrumentation. and use the code s procedures and calculation methods to conduct tests on the. new equipment Representatives of all parties to the test ensure that the test. methods are in compliance with the code Finally the test results are compared. to the performance criteria, Sometimes manufacturers and suppliers want to determine the exact.
performance of their equipment to understand the design margins or the effects of. manufacturing tolerances on performance In this case code tests are conducted. outside of any performance guarantees, To ensure that ASME PTCs best serve global industries existing and additional. products and services are always being evaluated As the preeminent provider. of standardized methods for performance testing monitoring and analysis of. energy conversion and industrial processes systems and equipment ASME. continues to develop and add new codes, In recent years PTC committees have started working on emerging technologies. earlier i e prior to full commercialization,Some of these areas are. Fuel Cell Power Systems,Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle. Combustion Turbine Inlet Air Conditioning Equipment. Concentrating Solar Power Plants,Overall Plant Performance with Carbon Capture.
By having a reliable repeatable performance test code available earlier we are. helping to facilitate the commercialization of these emerging technologies. by Philip M Gerhart Ph D P E University of Evansville and Samuel J Korellis P E EPRI ASME Performance Test Codes PTC provide rules and procedures for planning preparing executing and reporting performance tests A performance test is an engineering evaluation its results indicate how well the equipment performs its functions
