The time elapsing between the findings of research and their general acceptance and application by engineering practitioners is one of the great. i ll s of the engineering profession. Lack of interpretation and lack of selling of the fruits of research are advanced as the primary cause of the ill. The cure is de-pendent on a frank analysis of the existing situation, correction of present evils, and development of im-proved procedure. Discussion covers types of prac-titioners and researchers, analysis of research reports, and function of an interpreter for these reports.
