The folks at Knovel have been busy as of late. The online provider of technical information along with analytical and search tools has released a spate of new offerings, all in an effort to put technical information at engineers’ fingertips and be a resource for solving challenging technical problems.
One of the more recent new additions is Industrial Equipment Essentials, a package that dishes up guidance and best practice information on a range of product development topics, including material selection and tolerances, heat transfer, fluid dynamics, product design, vibration, plastics, resins, environmental impacts and compliance. The Industrial Equipment Essentials is one of five industry-specific packages Knovel will launch this year to give customers easy access to reliable and relevant technical resources, according to Chris Forbes, Knovel’s CEO and president. The package aggregates content and data analysis tools in such subject areas as chemistry and chemical engineering; electrical and power engineering; general engineering and engineering management; mechanics and mechanical engineering; metals and metallurgy; and plastics and rubber.
In related news, Knovel added the following publishers to its roster:
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
