As consensus agreements on technical specifications, guidelines, rules, etc., standards help engineers and companies build smarter and safer, guaranteeing adherence to important regulations while ensuring quality and consistency across multiple engineering processes.

To help engineers uncover standards more efficiently, Compendex on Engineering Village has just added thousands of standards from ASTM International. ASTM International standards are the tools of customer satisfaction and competitiveness for companies across a wide range of markets, including but not limited to:

  • Oil & Gas
  • Aerospace & Defense
  • Engineering Design & Construction
  • Consumer Products
  • Academia (for teaching the next generation of engineers about standards)

Over 12,000 ASTM standards are used around the world to improve product quality, enhance health and safety, strengthen market access and trade, and build consumer confidence. Compendex on Engineering Village now indexes these standards, plus inactive and older records. This addition complements the standards already indexed in Compendex from IEEE and SMPTE.

Searching for standards on Compendex in Engineering Village has its benefits:

  • Search for standards alongside other engineering literature that provide background for and context on how to achieve the standard.
  • Achieve higher precision in search results thanks to robust indexing and search capabilities

After performing any search in Compendex, use the “document type” refinement to filter for results that include standards.
