  • Study Group Meet-ups for October 2018 PE Exam

    Here are the details for the next study group for the PE Thermal and Fluid Systems and PE Machine Design and Materials exams on October 26. Weekly WebEx sessions will be held on Wednesday evenings starting on September 26 at 8:30 pm Eastern Time to discuss technical problems and exam-taking strategies.

    The following schedule notes areas of emphasis for the weekly meet-ups, but problems in any area of the exams are welcome for discussion:

    September 26 – Basic engineering practice, thermodynamics, dynamics, vibrations, strength of materials

    October 3 – Fluid mechanics, heat transfer, failure theory, machine design

    October 10 – Hydraulics, fluid applications, Joints, fasteners, control systems

    October 17 – Energy/power system applications, statics, material properties

    October 24 – Exam-taking strategies, last-minute questions

    The log in instructions for each week’s WebEx session will be posted to the community page.  Even though the sessions do not start until September 26, individuals are welcome to sign up for the study group and begin posting questions and comments at any time.

    For more information, please contact Dave Soukup, ASME Managing Director, Governance, at

  • First Virtual Study Group Session

    The first session will be on Wendesday, September 27 at 8:30 pm Eastern Time. 

    Here is the schedule of topics:

    Sept. 27 – Dynamics, Vibrations, Strength of Materials

    Oct. 4 – Failure Theory, Machine Design

    Oct. 11 – Joints, Fasteners, Control Systems

    Oct. 18 – Statics and Material Properties, Engineering Economics, Project Management

    Oct. 25 – Exam-taking strategies, last-minute questions

    Perhaps there  are some problems you have tried that you don’t understand the solution to.  I am hoping that others on the call would be able to provide insights.  If no one on the call knows the answer, I will pose the problem to one of the ASME communities and hope someone will respond. 

    Here is the information needed to log into the session on Wednesday at 8:30 pm Eastern Time.  I will be the administrator of the call and can pass control of the screen to your computer using the WebEx system, if you want to display something.
