American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Washington, DC.
Data on the sources, amounts, and trends of federal funding for engineering research and development (R&D) are presented for 1980-1984. Narrative highlights are provided for: the total federal funding obligations for engineering R&D, mechanical engineering, astronautical engineering, aeronautical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, and metallurgy and materials. Tables provide data on federal funding obligations broken down by selected agencies and engineering disciplines for each of the 5 years and for 3 categories of funding: total research, basic research, and applied research. Federal funding obligations to colleges and universities for total research, basic research, and applied research are tabulated in a similar manner. The following federal agencies are covered: Department of Agriculture, Department of Commerce, Department of Defense, Department of Energy, Department of Interior, Environmental Protection Agency, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and National Science Foundation. Combined totals for all other agencies for each selected discipline are also supplied. (SW)
