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).
