Subject: interfacial engineering
A scientist-friend informs me that, depending on context,
interfacial engineering can refer to:
(1) A part of chemical engineering concerned with the management of
molecular events at the surfaces of solids, liquids, or gases.
(2) A part of computer programming concerned with using software to
manage the interaction of computers with their human users.
(3) A part of industrial engineering concerned with understanding
and using huuman interactions in the workplace to increase productivity,
My consultant suggested doing a Web search for "interfacial
engineering" using a broad-based search engine like Alta Vista to find
titles/references that define the term.
