The new engineering
This website includes my papers and books about a new science of engineering that is conceptually and mathematically much simpler than conventional engineering.
The new engineering is conceptually simpler because it abandons concepts that are ratios of primary parameters—concepts such as:
· “modulus”, the ratio of stress to strain.
· “electrical resistance”, the ratio of electromotive force to electric current.
· “heat transfer coefficient”, the ratio of heat flux to boundary layer temperature difference.
The new engineering is mathematically simpler because, if these ratios are abandoned, problems can be solved with the primary variables kept separate, greatly simplifying the solution of problems that concern nonlinear behavior. (Just as in mathematics, x and y are kept separate in order to greatly simplify the solution of problems that concern nonlinear behavior.)
Note that, if modulus is used in the solution of a stress/strain problem, it is impossible to keep stress and strain separate because both stress and strain are implicit in “modulus”.
In the new engineering, “modulus” is never used. Stress/strain problems are always solved with stress and strain kept separate. Similarly for “electrical resistance”, “heat transfer coefficient”, etc.
When concepts such as “modulus” and “electrical resistance” are abandoned, laws such as Young’s law and Ohm’s law serve no purpose, and are also abandoned.
The monograph entitled Why laws such as Young’s law and Ohm’s law should be abandoned, and the laws that should replace them is an overview of the new engineering and its application. The monograph includes example problems that demonstrate how to apply the new engineering laws to proportional and nonlinear static problems in stress/strain engineering, electrical engineering, and heat transfer engineering. The solution of both static and dynamic problems is demonstrated in The New Engineering.

c. My 1964 paper that was accepted for publication in the AIChE Journal (but never published there), and the amazing view expressed by Professor Rohsenow. (The paper was published in 1994 in the International Journal of the Japanese Society of Mechanical Engineering. It was just as timely and important in 1994 as it had been in 1964.)
