A short abstract (100 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 International will be formatting papers accepted for publication prior to publication, it is not necessary for authors to do any more than minimal structural formatting with figures and tables included on separate pages at the end of the manuscript. However, for readability, please be sure to use double spacing. A citation must appear for each reference in the reference section. Number citations consecutively in square brackets [1]. The sentence punctuation follows the brackets [2]. 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 [8]. Do not use Ref. [9] or reference [9] except at the beginning of a sentence: Reference [9] shows ... . Unfortunately the ASME document translator cannot handle automatic endnotes in from Word; therefore, type the reference list at the end of the paper using the References style (samples at end of this template). Equations should be numbered consecutively beginning with (1) to the end of the paper,
1

Current address: or any additional information can be included using a footnote

including any appendices. The number should be enclosed in parentheses and set flush right in the column on the same line as the equation. LEVEL ONE HEADS 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 and considerations. These headings assist the reader in following the trend of thought and in forming a mental picture of the points of chief importance. Parts or sections may be numbered, if desired, but paragraphs should not be numbered. Level Two Heads 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. 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. ACKNOWLEDGMENT Please spell acknowledgment in American English is without an e after the g using the singular

heading even if you have many acknowledgments. Specific company names should be mentioned only in the acknowledgment and not in the body of the manuscript. NOMENCLATURE V variable in first column and description in this column, m I all variables should appear in italics tl two-letter abbreviations should appear in italics tla Re three-letter abbreviations should not appear in italics Reynolds number and similar abbreviations do not use italics
