Mr. Drew Brown of the Philadelphia Water Department will provide us with a presentation and tour of the Fairmount Water Works describing its history and innovative design features. The Fairmount Water Works is a National Mechanical Engineering Landmark, Civil Engineering Landmark, American Water Works Association Landmark, and U.S. National Historic Landmark. The Water Works was built in stages between 1812 and 1861 on the Schuylkill River at the foot of the prominent hill called Faire Mount and remained a key part of the City’s water system until 1909. It is world-renowned for the ingenuity displayed in its engineering and architectural design.
One person's trash is another person's ash! Thank you to all those who came out to the Covanta "Energy from Waste" Plant Tour! For more news and updates, find us on Facebook @ ASME Philadelphia...
The ASME Philadelphia Section has arranged for a group tour of the Covanta Conshohocken Renewable Energy Plant. This plant converts municipal waste into electricity.
Incineration is an uncontrolled combustion process without energy recovery. Energy-from-Waste (EfW) facilities that recover energy from municipal solid waste (MSW) in specially designed boilers to ensure complete combustion and the recovery of energy. The energy recovery – in the form of steam and electricity – is then used for the communities in which the facilities operate. EfW facilities also employ state-of-the-art pollution control equipment to scrub and filter emissions, preventing their release into our environment. The result is clean, renewable energy.
Tour Time/Date: 1:00pm Friday, May 18, 2018
Covanta Address: 1155 Conshohocken Rd, Conshohocken, PA 19428
Contact Brian George at email@example.com to reserve your spot on the tour. The tour is limited to 25.
Participants must wear closed toe shoes.
The ASME Philadelphia 2018 Awards night was a fantastic event. Dr. Yasha Kresh gave a dynamic and engaging keynote on the latest in artificial heart technology, and 10 student teams from across the Tri-state area came to showcase their sponsored projects. We were also very happy to present Mr. Peter Genovese with the "Outstanding Student of the Year" award. Finally, Mr. Joseph Silvaggio was honored as a 50-year ASME member who spoke about his career in industry.

“Part Man Part Machine – The sum of its Dynamic Blood Pumps”
You are invited to the Philadelphia Section Awards Banquet on:
6 pm, April 17, 2018
Doubletree Suites, 640 Fountain Road, Plymouth Meeting, PA 19462
The annual dinner banquet, featuring local university student engineeringprojects, Section awards, and a presentation by Prof. J. Yasha Kresh onmechanical engineering contributions to human circulatory support devices.Dinner costs with pre-registration: $30 members and guests, $10 students Walk-ins $40. Choice of Pan Seared *** of Chicken, Dijon Crusted Salmon, or Vegetarian.
Register by April 13th with Dean Cave, email@example.com
Professor Kresh's presentation:“Part Man, Part Machine: The Sum of Its Dynamic Blood Pumps"Over our lifetime, the heart pulses and pumps many tens of times a minute. When it fails to deliver adequate blood supply, life as we know it, is no longer self-sustaining. The mechanical (machines) circulatory support and cardiac substitutes used today are effectively pulseless and are predominantly radial centrifugal (impeller) and axial continuous (propeller) subtypes -rotating many thousands of times a minute.
Multidisciplinary engineering ingenuity makes it possible to integrate biological and mechanical domains. This talk (show & tell) will present the state-of-art in Mechanical Circulatory Support (MCS) devices designed to: bridge heart-failure patients awaiting heart-transplantation, enable functional remodeling / recovery and provide long-term (destination therapy) cardiac pump replacement. The growing (ubiquitous) number of MCS implants and competing technologies has placed importance on the understanding man/heart – machine/pump interaction and the assembly of a highly interdisciplinary Cardiogenic Shock Team. These highly specialized ‘Pit Crew Shock Teams’ perform tasks far more mission/time - critical than changing the wheels / tires and refueling.
Yasha Kresh is Professor of Cardiovascular Surgery and Medicine (Cardiology), Research Director of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Director of Cardiovascular Biophysics and Computing at the Drexel University College of Medicine (Hahnemann University Hospital).
Thank you so much to everyone who came out to Drexel Engineering for our tech talk series with Jason Fell on Reliability Engineering!
Stay tuned for more events coming soon!

It’s that time of year again. Hopefully everyone had a great summer. I can’t believe it’s over! The school year is off to a great start. To date 43 schools have signed up and have started designing their cities of the future. Our greatest need at this stage of the competition is for mentors. Each school is assigned a mentor to work with the students and share their real world experiences to help them develop their future city. Just 1 or 2 hours a week can make a big difference in how students approach their project and how they start to address it. The following is a the current list of schools that need mentors: Arcola Intermediate School Eagleville, PA Bachman Davision Home School Downingtown, PACollingswood Middle School Collingswood, NJEisenhower Science Technology Norristown, PAG.A.
