Description

The F&S Library provides:

Validated and authoritative F&S information

Reference content on fundamentals, core principles, technologies, processes and

applications

Detailed coverage of the latest technologies and research, models, applications

and standards, practical implementations, case studies, best practice and process

selection

Extensive worked examples that cover basic calculations through to process

design, including the effects of key variables

Links to key journal content via Elsevier’s ScienceDirect, plus links to other third

party content via the Scopus abstract search engine (subject to relevant licenses).

Education in filtration and separation technology to facilitate problem solving

The F&S Library will allow users to:

Understand how their area of research, application or product development is

connected to other areas outside their expertise or experience

See the ‘big picture’ while providing access to the material required to develop indepth

knowledge and understanding

Link principles to new technologies, and principles to real-world practice in order

to improve their research, product development, processes and outcomes

Stay up-to-date, discover and learn about the latest developments

Key Features

FEATURE: Roadmaps, short descriptive overviews of topics in the field, including an historical perspective of their

development, overview of key research and implementation issues, links to other topics, and references to key

papers and books

Benefit: customers are able to see the field as a whole and to make links between topics and see how other topics

impact on their own research field.

FEATURE: In-depth, overview introductions (60-100 page modules) to new technologies

Benefit: customers can quickly get an in depth overview of a new area or technology with pointers to key papers

early in the technology cycle

FEATURE: Highly structured content provides a path through the maze of information.

Benefit: Customers can easily orientate themselves around the field and link to the type and depth of information

they require.

FEATURE: Content that supplemented with new modules of content taking advantage of short form workflow,

keeping the overall cluster current.

Benefit: provides current knowledge in a field that is developing quickly

FEATURE: Introduction to the principles and linking these to the new technologies and their application

Benefit: Customers can learn how these technologies work through understanding the underlying principles
