General searches

A search field is shown at the top left of each page.
Here you can search for standards, seminars and conferences, or Beuth publications.

Use the wildcard * as a placeholder for any number of letters or numerals. For instance, enter "machin*" to search for the terms "machine", "machinery", "machines", "machinable", etc.

The default operator is "and". That means that when you enter several terms, a search is made for documents containing ALL these words. You can also use the OR operator (or "|" symbol) to search for documents containing one word or the other.

Searches are NOT case sensitive; that means it doesn't matter whether you use capital or small letters.

Example:  "safety requirements OR specifications" searches for documents containing the word "safety" AND the word "requirements" OR the word "specifications".
