Engineers Searched Online for Equations

Engineers conduct more searches for equations online, but they are dissatisfied with the results, a 2013 survey conducted on behalf of Knovel found. A majority of engineers surveyed look for equations at least once a week, and increasingly they search via the Internet first, rather than references, handbooks and other sources. Use of Internet search tools has grown significantly, from 59 percent of engineers surveyed in 2010 to 78 percent of engineers surveyed in 2013. Yet, engineers do not easily find the specific equations they need for a variety of engineer tasks online. There is also low satisfaction with the process of documenting, validating and saving equations for future use. - See more at: http://www.elsevier.com/about/press-releases/science-and-technology/engi...
