The IMechE journals cover all aspects of mechanical engineering from 1847 to the present day. Each of the other 18 journals, including the 16 proceedings of the IMechE, is focused on particular area of engineering to offer a greater depth of coverage in mechanical engineering.
Each journal has its own international Editorial Board, all of whome are leading engineers in their field, guided by a eminent engineer. The collection has provided a unique contribution to knowledge for over 160+ years.
The IMechE Archive: 1847–1998 gives you direct access to over 200,000 pages of unique material, including technical papers, obituaries, works visits, meeting reports, technical drawings, and editorial comment, all covering some of the most influential and innovative years of engineering development.
The IMechE Proceedings Archive contains seminal papers and key articles by leading engineers from those revolutionary 150 years, including:
In the Archive you can uncover some fascinating surprises. For example, a paper on the first European chocolate wrapping machine (1936), a report of the meeting where Henry Ford was awarded the James Watt International Medal (1938), and an article where the layout, site, and apparatus of the London Television Station are illustrated for the first time (1938).
