ASTM is the major database for standards issued by the American Society for testing and materials. Includes full text current and historical standards, and all other publications issued by ASTM: e-books, symposia, journal articles.
ASTM, formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials, is a globally recognized leader in the development and delivery of international voluntary consensus standards. SEDL includes 12,200 active ASTM standards used around the world to improve product quality, enhance safety, facilitate market access & trade, & build consumer confidence. Also, there are 28,500 historical & withdrawn standards, plus 12,300 Redlined Standards (PDF documents that provide change marks to compare changes between an active standard & the prior version) included where revisions were made. There are nearly 100 categories of standards with the largest number in the categories of Construction, Metals, Paint & Related Coatings, Petroleum, Plastics, Environmental, Rubber, Steel, Textiles, & Electronics; new areas that reflect 3D Imaging standards, Additive Manufacturing & Medical Device Standards.
First-time visitors will want to start at the "Background" section; they may then proceed to the "Policy & Program" area, where they can learn what the state is doing to combat this situation. Some of these programs include a voluntary greenhouse gas emission registry for California companies and a research program to spur environmentally-friendly energy alternatives. Finally, the site also includes a very nice glossary of terms used in discussing global climate change.
Knowledge portal highlighting civil engineering and technology on the Internet. iCivilEngineer collects, indexes and catalogues high-quality internet resources in civil engineering knowledge and technology.
Of most interest are feature technical articles, technology news, engineering design guides, online full-text research papers, tutorials and real-world project information. All of them are accessible or downloadable at no charge.
Over 30,000 pages of engineering fundamentals and calculators. Top level categories are: Materials, Design Center, Processes, Units & Constants, Formulas, and Mathematics. Commercially maintained and offers additional services for a fee-based membership.
A knowledge portal specially designed for civil engineering professionals and students. It has two goals in mind: 1) collect and catalog valuable civil engineering relevant Internet resources so that people can find information fast; 2) explore how to take advantage of Internet technology to serve the civil engineering community.
IRIS is a consortium of 120+ US universities dedicated to the operation of science facilities for the acquisitions, management and distribution of seismological data. Mostly for advanced researchers, there is also a "Facilities" section where one can find "grey literature." The "Research" section has observational & derived data & users should consult the documentation about how to use this data. The "Education" section has teaching resources appropriate from high school through graduate school, including earthquake events & information such as "Recent Earthquake Teachable Moments"
Is a free and open resource designed primarily for faculty and students of higher education. Links to online learning materials are collected here along with annotations such as peer reviews and assignments.
Current market research and analysis in a broad spectrum of industries including information technology, energy & environmental sciences, biotech and telecommunications. Contains an annual summary/update of industrial sectors. Has corporate index, glossary, ability to incorporate data & prepare reports.
Features information on works of structural engineering, architecture or construction through time, history and from around the world. Coverage begins at the time of the pyramids in Egypt and Roman construction, continues to Romanesque and Gothic churches & through to the Industrial Revolution all the way to today & beyond. Structurae deals mostly with bridges, tunnels, dams, skyscrapers, stadiums, towers, & extent of structures in all forms.
"Top ten" links chosen by industry experts - general civil engineering as well as more specific areas such as bridges, geotechnical, hydrology, indoor/outdoor environment, organizations, software, tall buildings, transportation.
The subject gateway on Engineering. Provides fast access to a large scientific technical data pool, well structured search results, and direct access to the services of the Technical Information Library.
Commercial website that provides access to resources, tools and basic information for engineering and design of technical applications. Searchable by category and although not comprehensive it will provide basic useful engineering information.
