The effects of the environment on engineering design practices
Intro to Mechanical Engineering
Dr. Namas Chandra
The environment heavily effects design practices of engineers due to several different factors. This presentation will cover the five most common factors:
Location is as important as the design. Different
locations create a need for different:
For example, highly corrosive environments, such as a beach, create a need for materials that will not deteriorate as quickly. Area such as deep sea and outer space require designs that can withstand high pressure differences.
Government regulation serves to ensure safety and functionality in design practices. Though regulations are strict and consequences are harsh, they increase public confidence in engineers and ensure past mistakes are not repeated.
The first known record of written regulations imposed against engineers. This document listed, among other things, a list of consequences against shipwrights and house-builders if their designs were to injure or kill their owners.
