The new engineering

 

Dear Colleague,

 

This website concerns a new science of engineering that is conceptually simpler because it has fewer parameters, and mathematically simpler because it greatly simplifies the solution of problems that concern nonlinear behavior. 

 

The new science of engineering is described in The New Engineering by Eugene F. Adiutori.

 

The problem with conventional engineering.

The problem with conventional engineering is that many of its “laws” are in the form of proportional equations.  When a proportional equation is used to solve a proportional problem, the solution is quite simple because the coefficient in the equation is a constant.  But when that same equation is used to solve a nonlinear problem, the solution is not simple because the coefficient in the equation is a variable, and this additional variable greatly complicates the solution of nonlinear problems.

 

For example, Eq. (1) typifies the laws of conventional engineering science.  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 variable, and the solution concerns the three variables q, DT, and h.  This additional variable greatly complicates the solution of nonlinear problems. 

 

q = hDT                                                                                                       (1)

 

The solution of the problem.

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 that always contain only two variables, such as Eqs. (2) to (4).

 

q = f{DT}                                                                                                    (2)

 

s = f{e}                                                                                                       (3)

 

V = f{I}                                                                                                       (4)

 

Eqs. (2) to (4) are laws in the new engineering.

8.    My patents.

 

9.     Narratives:

 

     a.  Debunking the myth that Newton conceived the heat transfer coefficient and the equation inappropriately referred to as “Newton’s law of cooling “ in most American heat transfer texts.

 

     b.  The storm of protest against “New Theory of Thermal Stability in Boiling Systems” published in Nucleonics in May of 1964, and my response.

 

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.)

 

d.     The lecture Professor Graham B. Wallis invited me to give in 1965, and the errors and lack of attribution in his publications on thermal stability.

 

e.     My futile efforts to publish “A Transformed Moody Chart That Is Read Without Iterating”, including the mind-boggling rejection by the Editor of the ASME Journal of Fluids Engineering.
