The ASME Journal of Mechanical Design (JMD) serves the broad design community as the 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:
- Design automation, including design representation, virtual reality, geometric design, design evaluation, design optimization, risk and reliability-based optimization, design sensitivity analysis, system design integration, ergonomic and aesthetic considerations, and design for market systems
- Design of direct contact systems, including cams, gears and power transmission systems
- Design education
- Design of energy, fluid, and power handing systems
- Design innovation and devices, including design of smart products and materials
- Design for manufacturing and the life cycle, including design for the environment, DFX, and sustainable design
- Design of mechanisms and robotic systems, including design of macro-, micro- and nano-scaled mechanical systems, machine component, and machine system design
- Design theory and methodology, including creativity in design, decision analysis, design cognition, and design synthesis.
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; a list of recent and upcoming issues for easy reference; and a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs). We continue to update the site based on your input. Welcome to the JMD community!

Patterns are ubiquitous in engineering design. There are theoretical, computational, and artistic challenges associated with many aspects of design that take advantage of symmetry of patterns and ability to fold complex shapes. While various approaches exist, it is important to bring together good examples of practical design and the thought process of the designers who [...]Full Story
Uncertainty is ubiquitous in engineering design. There are theoretical and computational challenges associated with many aspects of design under uncertainty. While various approaches exist, some are ad-hoc in nature. It is therefore imperative to develop theoretically sound, self-consistent, and computationally efficient methods to support design under uncertainty. Consequently, the ASME Journal of Mechanical Design calls [...]Full Story
