Tip Clearance Measurement in Aero and Industrial Turbomachinery

9781905941209: Tip Clearance Measurement in Aero and Industrial Turbomachinery

How do engineers create new knowledge? Can engineers capture new knowledge, or in reality do they lose it almost as fast as it is created? How can engineers apply new knowledge in a way that really changes the industry within which they work? How do engineers move from research, to development to production? "Tip Clearance Measurement in Aero and Industrial Turbomachinery" answers these questions and more. The editor and authors provide real insight into the reality of what they needed to create and apply new knowledge into the most demanding applications. Touted by many leaders, both domestically and internationally, this book will appeal to: corporate managers accountable for maintaining a technical lead over competitors; senior engineers who are trusted to lead research and development programs; junior engineers who wish to learn what it means to develop and apply new technology; those within the turbomachinery community who wish to gain an insight into how new knowledge is created and put to work; those within the wider engineering community who wish to understand the product development process, to make their own development effort more effective; and, those within academia who wish to become more effective at not only creating new knowledge, but putting it to work.
