Refrigeration: The Unseen Giant

Refrigeration: The Unseen Giant

I’ve taken the title from a 1980s video produced to promote the industry. It’s an industry pretty well hidden from the average person and was recently voted as “Essential to modern life” (1). It consumes large amounts of energy. But also has the capability of delivering renewable energy that can be used as a fossil fuel alternative. Read More

Take the LEAP to Implement Your Industry 4.0 Applications and Realize Closed Loop Lifecycle Management

A strong driver of Industry 4.0 is the shift from the simple delivery of products towards a holistic provision of solutions. Customer satisfaction seems to require such a move beyond simple ownership models towards new, value-adding service/function schemes. Read More

How to Involve More Women and Girls in Engineering

How to Involve More Women and Girls in Engineering

As millions of students of all ages return to school this fall, they are making important choices that have a strong influence on their eventual career path – which college majors to pursue, which high school classes to take, even which elementary school extracurricular activities to join. Many of them – especially women, girls and members of minority groups – make choices that lead them away from professions in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Engineering

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.
