How to Understand the Numbering System for SAE Technical Papers
Technical Papers have one of two numbering formats:
SAE papers can be published in SAE Special Publications, in SAE Proceedings, in the SAE Transactions, and in various SAE Journals.
"SP" = Special Publications - a collection of Technical Papers presented at a given session in one conference.
"HS" = Handbook Supplement
"P" = Proceedings
"PT" = Progress in Technology
Our holdings for SAE Technical Papers:
Kettering has access from 1996→present for Technical Papers in SAE Mobilus.
How to Understand the Numbering System for SAE Standards
All SAE Standards begin with letters. Ground Vehicle Standards start with J; Aerospace Standards start with AS, AMS, AIR and ARP. Standards often have various iterations and updates in different years, so be aware of which version you need.
SAE Ground Vehicle Standards are also called J-Papers or J-Reports because the standard numbers begin with J. The year of the standard is inside its number. For example:
Pay attention to "Current" versus "Historical" standards. The number of the standard changes with the year it was released, but the title does not.
Our holdings for Ground Vehicle Standards:
Kettering has access from 1927→present for all Ground Vehicle Standards in SAE Mobilus.
We do not have Aerospace Standards in SAE Mobilus.
