A Cooperative Association Perspective on the Sponsorship of Engineering College Research 640262
This article presents information on engineering research sponsored by the American Petroleum Institute and administered in the Division of Refining. The titles of six illustrative projects in engineering research are listed together with six projects currently under way. There is some discussion of the preferred type of institution for conducting engineering research; the American Petroleum Institute has not developed a consensus favoring any particular type of agency for the execution of sponsored research. A case history describing a project carried out several years ago is recounted.
