Description
Industrial research today is conducted in a changing, hectic, and highly competitive global environment.Until about 25 years ago, the R&D conducted in the U.S. and the technologies based upon it were internationally dominant. But in the last 20 years, strong global competition has emerged and the pace at which high technology products are introduced has increased. Consequently, the lifetime of a new technology has shortened and the economic benefits of being first in the marketplace have forced an emphasis on short-term goals for industrial development. To be successful in the international marketplace, corporations must have access to the latest developments and most recent experimental data as rapidly as possible.

In addition to the increased pace of industrial R&D, many American companies have manufacturing facilities, as well as product development activities in other countries. Furthermore, the restructuring of many companies has led to an excessive burden of debt and to curtailment of in-house industrial research. All of these developments make it imperative for industry to have access to the latest information in a convenient form as rapidly as possible. The goal of this handbook is to provide this type of up-to-date information for engineers involved in the field of thermal engineering.
