The purpose of this Opensource forum is to promote the development of a JAVA based Application Programming Interface for the field of Mass Properties Engineering.
This project started as a NASA LaRC Innovation Institute project in 2007 to promote the general field of mass properties engineering and to define electronic file standards and data object manipulations to support that field. Weight Engineering Journal Winter 2007 published by the Society of Allied Weight Engineers (SAWE) provides a descriptive article, "Using MPEX as a standard file format for mass properties engineering data" as introduction to the topic. SAWE Paper No. 3440, "E-Standards for Mass Properties Engineering", provides additional thoughts.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you desire additional information or wish to have your thoughts and code enhancements included in this project. This is currently only the initial code of a project which hopefully will be greatly expanded upon by expertise from interested members in the weights engineering community.
