Knovel Equations Webinar and White Paper for Engineers

By: , Posted on: April 18, 2014



The Internet is making equation searches more accessible, but could it be decreasing their reliability or validity, potentially impacting the quality of your projects? How can the engineering industry address the critical issue of reliable equation and calculation resources?

Join us on Tuesday, April 29th at 2PM EST (11AM PST) for a complimentary 1-hour webinar where experts, Karl Jacob, Myrto-Panagiota Zacharof, and Colin Selleck discuss their real world experiences and research about equation use in engineering practices, the practical application of calculations, the risks posed by the Internet, and possible solutions to finding and publishing validated equations.


Equations whitepaper

With today’s abundance of data, finding the right equation to fit the right use case is a duanting task. Today’s engineers lack the basic tools to efficiently navigate this over-abundance of data to ensure that their calculations are accurate and validated.

This new whitepaper by Knovel, written by Colin Selleck, shares insight on the historical and practical use of equations in engineering practice and provides practical solutions for the modern engineer’s dilemma of too much information from too many potentially unreliable sources. And, equally, important, it gives guidance on how to document, archive and share those valuable equations. Download this thought provoking whitepaper now.

Engineering brings science and technology out of the lab and into the real world. Often without thinking about it, we engage every day with technology that is the product of careful, precise design and execution by engineers in electronics, optics, and communications; embedded systems; automotive, aerospace, and marine; mechanical; and many other disciplines. For decades, Elsevier has maintained and grown extensive collections in these and other cutting-edge areas, like biomechanics and nanotechnology, through our trusted imprints: Newnes, Academic Press, and Woodhead Publishing. In addition, our powerful online platforms like Knovel and Engineering Village help streamline research and development processes for users around the world.
