An analysis of mechanical engineering studies

Translation Title
Abstract

To view the developments and changes that have occurred in scientific fields, they need to be holistically evaluated. Bibliometric studies are one of the most useful methods that have been developed for holistic analyses. When examining engineering fields using bibliometric analyses, we see those 875,000 publications on civil engineering, 2.9 million publications on mechanical engineering, and 5.02 million publications on electrical and electronic engineering have been produced that developed in connection with our span of human history. This study examines and holistically analyzes the changes in the field of mechanical engineering from 1935 to the present in terms of the articles produced in this field. The study analyzes the publications from journals published in the field of mechanical engineering in the Scopus database. As important metadata for publications, the study also examines the changes in keywords over the years in order to see how the field of mechanical engineering has evolved. The top three most-used keywords are mathematical models (used in 117,241 publications), finite element method (used in 115,549 publications), and computer simulation (used in 99,492 publications), respectively. We find the opportunity to also see the changes in the field of mechanical engineering in terms of the changes in keywords. In addition to keywords, the top three most-published authors in the field of mechanical engineering are Akishisa Inoue with 1,308 publications, Andrew Allcock with 716 publications, and Terence G. Langdon with 672 publications, respectively. The top three sources with the highest number of publications in the field of mechanical engineering are the Journal of Alloys and Compounds with 64,939 publications, Materials Science Forum with 55,821 publications, and Materials Research Society Symposium – Proceedings with 55,085 publications, respectively. The top three most-published institutions in this field are the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China with 47,260 publications, the Chinese Academy of Sciences with 46,253 publications, and Tsinghua University with 26,970 publications, respectively. The top three institutions in terms of supporting the greatest number of publications in this field are the National Natural Science Foundation of China with 196,881 publications, the National Science Foundation with 47,025 publications, and the Fundamental Research Funds for the Central Universities with 28,118 publications.
