Knovel introduces Interactive Equations

Knovel Interactive Equations, now available via Knovel's cloud-based platform, launches with hundreds of validated engineering equations that engineers can search through, solve and share in a variety of formats.

A 2013 Knovel Engineering Survey found that roughly one-third of engineers rely on equations multiple times per day. Knovel Interactive Equations applies Knovel's years of expertise in engineering research and development to help engineers solve many of the common and uncommon challenges they face.

Give it a try and let us know what you think!!

CONSTRUCTION ALERT > Sound Transit Drilling on Campus: Aug 13 - Sept 19

Sound Transit construction crews will be on campus August 13 - September 19 to install ground monitoring points in preparation for the light rail tunneling.  Installation will involve surface drilling at various locations across campus.  They will be at each location 2-3 days.    Be prepared for noise and traffic/pedestrian detours.

Several of the monitoring points will be in the vicinity of the Engineering Library Building.  In particular, there will be 3 drill sites next to or close to the Engineering Library during the following periods:
*August 25-29
*September 2-3
*September 15-16

The Engineering Library will remain open, but please be aware that there will be noise and various other disruptions accompanying the surface drilling, monitor installation and related construction activities.
