A tag is a keyword or label that categorizes your question with other, similar questions. Using the right tags makes it easier for others to find and answer your question.
Questions within the problem domain of mechanical engineering. Mechanical Engineering can be a broad field; consider choosing more specific tags if they apply.
Study and applications of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. Use this tag when someone who has trained as an electrical engineer is likely to be able to answer your question.
Questions related to the integrity, design requirements, or analysis of structures.
Questions relating to fluids at rest (fluid statics) or the forces and effects of fluids in motion (fluid dynamics).
Use for questions about designing, manufacturing or synthesizing engineered materials or about the properties of specific materials. Questions concerning common construction materials, such as wood, s…
Questions that fall into the problem domain of civil engineering or one of its sub-disciplines. Questions about buildings or other structures could usually use the "structural-engineering" tag also.
Questions about the models and theories of control engineering and the application of control theory to design systems with desired behaviors.
Questions relating to the various laws of thermodynamics, transformation or movement of a form of energy to another form, primarily but not limited to heating or cooling of a fluid.
Structural analysis is the determination of the effects of loads on physical structures and their components. Structures subject to this type of analysis include all that must withstand loads, such as…
Questions regarding motors. All types of motors, their gearboxes, how to drive an electrical motor etc.
Questions about or related to design.
Questions relating to the transfer of heat via the mechanism of convection, conduction, or radiation, in forms of systems (or your device) attempting to obtain thermodynamic equilibrium with another s…
Questions pertaining to pressurized systems and their applications, from containment to system losses to using as a benchmark for measurement.
Questions about using applied mechanics to model engineering problems.
for questions within the problem domain of chemical engineering.
Torque is defined mathematically as the rate of change of angular momentum of an object (in physics it is called "net torque"). The definition of torque states that one or both of the angular velocity…
Questions about the theory and applications of structural elements designed to resist bending.
Statics is branch of engineering concerned with the analysis of forces and moments on physical systems in static equilibrium.
Questions about the dynamics of a system. Currently there is a very large scope ranging from from dynamics in mechanics, vehicle and flight dynamics, to system dynamics and fluid dynamics.
Aerospace engineering is the primary branch of engineering concerned with the research, design, development, construction, and testing of aircraft and spacecraft.
Measurements, instrumentation, calibration and metrology.
Questions relating to or the engineering application of a device that must withstand a loading via deflection, stresses, resistance to buckling, or natural frequencies.
For questions related to the alloy steel: Its production, material properties and applications. The carbon content of steel is between 0.002% and 2.1% by weight for plain iron-carbon alloys.
For questions about the design, classification and working principle of pumps. A pump is a device that moves fluids (liquids or gases), or sometimes slurries, by mechanical action.
Questions related to sensors or sensor-based systems and their applications.
Questions about the flow and use of fluids.
Computer-Aided Design is the use of computers in the engineering design process. It involves drafting, modelling, simulation, optimisation, and creation of technical documentation. The term CAD is oft…
for questions about numerical or analytical modeling and simulation of engineered systems.
