** ****THE
NEW ENGINEERING**

**The problem with
conventional engineering.**

The
problem with conventional engineering is that many of its “laws” are in the
form of proportional equations, and they are used to solve problems that concern
proportional behavior, *and* problems
that concern nonlinear behavior.

When
a law in the form of a proportional equation is used to solve a problem that
concerns proportional behavior, the solution is quite simple because the
coefficient in the law is a *constant*,
and there are only *two* variables in
the law. But when a law in the form of a
proportional equation is used to solve a problem that concerns *nonlinear *behavior, the solution

is
*not *simple because the coefficient in
the law is a *variable*. This *third
*variable *greatly *complicates the
solution of problems that concern nonlinear behavior.

For
example, Eq. (1) is a law in the form of a proportional equation. If Eq. (1) is used to solve a problem in
which q is proportional to DT, h is a constant,
and the solution concerns the *two *variables
q and DT. But if Eq. (1) is used to solve a problem in
which q is a *nonlinear *function of DT (as in natural convection,
condensation, and boiling), h is a *third *variable. This additional variable *greatly* complicates the solution of problems that concern nonlinear
heat transfer.

q
= hDT (1)

Similarly,
Eq. (2) is a law in the form of a proportional equation. If Eq. (2) is used to solve a problem that
concerns elastic behavior, E is a constant, and the solution concerns the *two* variables s and e. But if Eq. (2) is used to solve a problem
that concerns inelastic behavior, E is a *third*
variable. This additional variable
greatly complicates the solution of problems that concern inelastic behavior.

s = Ee (2)

**The solution of
the problem with conventional engineering.**

The
solution of the problem requires that laws in the form of proportional
equations, *and *the coefficients in
those laws, *must be abandoned*. They must be replaced by laws such as Eqs. (3) to (5) that *always
*contain *two* variables.

q
= *f*{DT} (3)

s = *f*{e} (4)

V
= *f*{I} (5)

Eqs. (3) to (5) are laws in the new
engineering. They are dimensionless and
dimensionally homogeneous because, in the new engineering, parameter symbols
represent numerical value but *not*
dimension. For example, Eq. (3) states
that the numerical value of q is a function of the numerical value of DT, and similarly for Eqs. (4) and (5). If
an equation is quantitative, the dimension units that underlie parameter
symbols *must* be specified in an
accompanying nomenclature.
