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.

× 1840
Questions within the problem domain of mechanical engineering. Mechanical Engineering can be a broad field; consider choosing more specific tags if they apply.
× 774
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.
× 560
Questions related to the integrity, design requirements, or analysis of structures.
× 478
Questions relating to fluids at rest (fluid statics) or the forces and effects of fluids in motion (fluid dynamics).
× 435
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.
× 435
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…
