Welcoming a new arrival

When you received this month's issue, you will have noticed an additional publication. That is because this month, Eureka and Eureka Specifier are joined by our newest stablemate, Engineering Materials.

Materials represent one of the fastest-moving and most exciting areas in modern engineering. However, while the advent of new materials and developments in materials processing represent fantastic opportunities in design, they pose almost as many questions as they offer solutions. Is it cost-effective? Is it sustainable? What is its carbon footprint? Is there a large enough supply of it? Can it be manufactured cost-effectively? All these questions represent serious headaches for anyone addressing a new design and can act as strong incentives to stick with the tried and tested rather than adopt new materials or methods.

Engineering Materials' purpose is to help answer these questions and offer readers the information they need to make the right material choice; examining the advantages and implications of those choices in detail and giving readers the information they need to make the right decision. It is our belief that Engineering Materials will be a valuable and longstanding part of our editorial offering and we hope you enjoy reading it.

These are exciting times for Eureka, of course. In addition to the launch of Engineering Materials, we are also now gearing up for the Engineering Design Show on 10-11 October at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry. Registration for this event is now open online at www.engineeringdesignshow.co.uk. By registering now, you can ensure free entry to this event – the only one of its type designed specifically for design engineers. For that reason among many, we would urge all of Eureka's readers to register now and for this exciting show.
