Dear Colleagues

In addition to the hundreds of whitepapers (growing daily) on our site freely available to you, we have also placed up a reasonable number of conference papers (from the UK/South Africa and Australia) for you to download (at no charge obviously). These range from Pumps: Maintenance, Design and reliability, to Safety Control Systems and Industrial Wireless systems. Obviously we would appreciate it if you would acknowledge the authors (and their companies) if you refer to them in your work. We are enormously grateful to all these engineering professionals who made their expertise and knowledge freely available to their peers.

Yours in engineering learning
