A short abstract (250 words maximum) should open the paper. The purposes of an abstract are: (1) to give a clear indication of the objective, scope, and results of the paper so that readers may determine whether the full text will be of particular interest to them; (2) to provide key words and phrases for indexing, abstracting, and retrieval purposes. The abstract should not attempt to condense the whole subject matter into a few words for quick reading. INTRODUCTION
Because ASME typesets accepted papers prior to publication, it is not necessary for authors to do more than structural formatting for the body of the paper. Figures and tables should not be inserted in the text, but each should be included on a separate page at the end of the paper. For readability, please be sure to use double spacing. A citation must appear for each reference in the reference section. Citations should be consecutively numbered using square brackets . The sentence punctuation follows the brackets . Multiple references [2, 3] or a range of references [4-7] should appear within a single set of brackets. In sentences, refer simply to the reference number, as in . Do not use “Ref. ” or “reference ” except at the beginning of a sentence: “Reference  shows ... ”. The References should be in a separate section at the end of the paper. Equations should be numbered consecutively beginning with (1) to the end of the paper, including any appendices. The number should be enclosed in parentheses and set flush right in the column on the same line as the equation.
The text should be organized into logical parts or sections. Headings and subheadings should appear throughout the paper to divide the subject matter to emphasize the major elements. These headings assist the reader in following the trend of thought and in forming a mental picture of the points of importance. Parts or sections may be numbered, if desired, but paragraphs should not be numbered. COPYRIGHT REMINDER If any material that is included in a paper is under copyright, the authors of the paper are responsible for obtaining copyright permissions, including any information required by the copyright holder, and be able to produce such permissions upon request.
All papers should be concise regardless of length. Long quotations should be avoided by referring to sources. Illustrations and tables, where they help clarify the meaning or are necessary to demonstrate results properly, are desirable, but they should be kept to a practicable minimum, and included on individual pages at the end of the manuscript. Level-Three Heads
It is ASME policy that SI units of measurement be included in all papers with the U.S. customary units provided in parentheses or in a supplementary table.
Please spell “acknowledgment” in American English is without an “e” after the “g” using it in the singular for the heading even if there are multiple acknowledgments. Specific company names should be mentioned only in the acknowledgment and not in the body of the manuscript. FUNDING A separate section listing funding sources should be included. The full names along with their abbreviation should be included, e.g., U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

Information Regarding Figures and Tables
▪ Each figure and table should be included on a separate sheet (one figure or table per page) at the end of the manuscript.
▪ Tables can be created using Microsoft Word.
▪ Figures (graphics files) must be saved as a TIFF, PostScript, or EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) files for uploading individually if the paper is accepted for publication
▪ ASME Papers are targeted for 9 typeset pages, which is approximately 9000 words (9 typeset pages). Using 1000 words for each typeset page, figures can be estimated at ~250 “words” for each quarter of a column they will occupy.
▪ Text in figures should be reviewed for legibility for reproduction in the following sizes:
Single Column 20 picas 8 cm 3.25 in
Double Column 40 picas 16 cm wide 6.5 in. -----------------------  Corresponding author information can be added as a footnote.
