1.Goal: system to be designed\reference: creation versus man made
2.Given: understand physics of the system (specify system requirements)\ref: global versus local
3.Create a mathematical model (specify structural system, material and applied loads)
1.Propose a theory: reduce assumptions deviating model from reality\ref: 3D nonlinear dynamic probabilistic soil-soil GIS interaction
2.Formulate equations: according to state of knowledge and available tools \ref: analytical, anatomical, analogical
3.Solve the equations: analyze the structure\ ref: verify analysis laws
2. Verify equilibrium.
3. Verify stress-strain relationships.
