ESDU International provides subscription-based validated and authoritative engineering design data, methods and software for the engineer. These are presented in over 1300 design guides with supporting software (including source code) and are the result of more than 60 years experience of providing engineers with information, data and techniques for fundamental design and analysis. ESDU provides design data and methods for aerospace, mechanical, chemical, civil, structural engineering plus environmental and material science. Formerly the technical department of the British Royal Aeronautical Society, ESDU is the only collection of validated data of its kind in existence.

In this presentation we will show how the depth and breadth of ESDU data, can be easily and readily adapted for educational uses to solve the faculty member's time and resource dilemma.
