ASCE Standards Added to Compendex

on Tue, 10/16/2018 - 19:15

Standards are cornerstones of engineering research, design & development, and manufacturing. Along with documentation like journals, books, patents, and more, standards help organizations build the world.

In a continuation of our strategy from the beginning of the year, Compendex on Engineering Village has added the complete set of active standards from ASCE, the American Society of Civil Engineers. This renowned society provides “technical guidelines for promoting safety, reliability, productivity, and efficiency in civil engineering. Many of its standards are referenced by model building codes and adopted by state and local jurisdiction. They also provide guidance for design projects around the world.”

From bridges to roads to infrastructure, civil engineers quite literally help build the world around us. This content addition for Compendex helps civil engineers discover the codes and specifications they need for initial design alongside the journals, books, and more that will help turn their ideas into a reality.

For civil engineering students & researchers, ASCE standards on Compendex means they will spend less time searching in multiple databases to get the inputs they need for cutting-edge research.

ASCE joins other renowned standard development organizations added on Compendex this year, including IEEE, SMPTE, and ASTM.

When searching in Compendex on Engineering Village, you can always use the “document type” filter to narrow your results to just standards. Or, simply search “ASCE” to uncover all that Compendex has on ASCE.
