ESDU provides validated engineering knowledge and best practices to help design engineers solve complex problems and create innovative products. Guided and approved by independent expert Committees, and endorsed by key professional institutions, ESDU's methods are developed by industry for industry.
The ESDU Catalogue includes a brief overview of ESDU Engineering Methods and Software and the different Series options available. Items are listed by Series, Section, and document number, with a brief summary of each document.
The ESDU Automotive Collection consists of a group of design methods, best practices, data and software tools for solving complex Automotive Engineering problems and enabling faster and more reliable decision making during vehicle design. The ESDU Automotive Collection is structured to complement your internal design practices, address gaps in information and provide access to best-in-class industry expertise.
The ESDU Aerodynamics Design Collection is an extensive set of methods for specific topics and problems with supporting theory, references, and worked examples. It also includes the USAF DATCOM, a collection of methods in the area of aerodynamic stability and control prediction. Together, these references and tools provide a comprehensive resource that helps improve research, design, and analysis workflows.
The Ejectors and Jet Pumps brochure provides brief information on each Data Item in the group that treats the different combinations of working fluids (which can be gases, liquids or solids in suspension).
The ESDU Aerostructures Engineering package provides valuable insight and guidance on various aspects of aero-structural design such as structural analysis, fatigue, fracture mechanics, strength of components, vibration, composite structures and metallic material properties.
The information available in the ESDU Nuclear Package complements the highly conservative design and operating standards and codes used in the nuclear industry. The ESDU validated methodologies provide a reliable source of engineering knowledge for design within the targets set by the International standards and codes. These methodologies are based on measurements, analytical and computational techniques, such as CFD and FEA. The ESDU Nuclear Package represents industry best practice in
- the thermo-hydraulic and structural design of nuclear power plants and facilities,
- ventilation systems,
- noise suppression and environmental impact.
