It should also be of interest to high school students who are considering a career in engineering and wish to learn more about the nature and challenges of the engineering profession. The book begins with a brief history of engineering, which examines the roots of engineering and traces its development to the present day. The second chapter defines engineering and describes the functions and career paths for various branches of engineering. Chapter 3 describes the professional responsibilities of engineers, the legal framework for the practice of engineering through registration and licensing, the purpose and importance of engineering societies, and the code of ethics that protects the integrity of the profession.
The fourth chapter deals with creativity and the learning process, offering suggestions on how to be a successful engineering student and how to develop and nurture creativity in engineering practice. Chapter 5 discusses the engineering design method and describes techniques commonly used by engineers to solve problems. The sixth chapter describes the ways that successful engineers communicate with their supervisors, their peers, and the public.
It includes sections on the engineer as a writer, as a speaker, and as a presiding officer, as well as the rudiments of graphical communication. Chapter 7 gives recommended procedures for the handling of engineering data and discusses the application of common mathematical procedures to the solution of engineering problems. Chapter 8 is a case study of Atlanta's Freedom Parkway Project, which, because of public opposition, extended over 30 years.
The protracted controversy surrounding this project involved five mayors, six transportation commissioners, seven governors, and a former president of the United States. The case study demonstrates clearly that engineering is much more than solving mathematical equations and that engineers must be concerned about the possible harmful effects of their designs on people and the earth's environment.
Chapter 9 is a case study that examines the circumstances and events leading to the aftermath of one of the most dramatic engineering failures of this century: the space shuttle Challenger accident. The chapter focuses not only on the engineering failure that led to the loss of the Challenger crew but also on P R E F A C E the breakdown in communication and engineering ethics that allowed the shuttle to be launched despite unacceptable risks to human life.
In this, the third edition of this book, the material has been thoroughly updated, and several areas have been expanded. For example, in Chapter 2, new sections are devoted to emerging specialties in bioengineering, computer engineering, and microelectromechanical systems MEMS.
Incorporating material written by Dr. Chapter 3 gives a more complete description of Canada's Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer and adds a new section on the framework of engineering ethics. Chapter 4 has new sections on personality and learning styles, and characteristics of creative people. Chapter 5 gives an expanded treatment of learning from failures and a new section on working in teams.
The material in Chapter 6 has been extensively expanded and modernized. It includes new material on how engineers find information, and how they evaluate and process information and turn it into reliable knowledge.
It describes the use of the World Wide Web and discusses how to evaluate Web sources. It describes sources of information such as databases and print reference sources, and gives examples of Web resources that engineers can use.
The material on graphical communications has been thoroughly revised and updated, and includes discussions of computer aided design CAD , simulation, and virtual reality.
Many people and organizations contributed to the development of this book. The contributions of several colleagues and friends, which were acknowledged in the first two editions, extend to this edition as well. For this edition, I especially appreciate the contributions of Dr. Nelson Baker, who updated the material on graphical communications and the help of Professor Greg Raschke, who prepared the section on information and communications resources.
I am also grateful to the many people who provided information and gave of their time to help me with the case study on the Freedom Parkway. They are named and in some instances quoted in the chapter. Finally, I thank the many organizations and individuals that supplied information, photographs, and sketches for the book.
Direct credit is given in the book for these contributions. It has evolved and developed as a practical art and a profession over more than 50 centuries of recorded history.
In a broad sense, its roots can be traced to the dawn of civilization itself, and its progress parallels the progress of mankind. Our ancient forebears attempted to control and use the materials and forces of nature for public benefit just as we do today. They studied and observed the laws of nature and developed a knowledge of mathematics and science that was not possessed by the common people.
They applied this knowledge with discretion and judgment in ways that satisfied beneficial social needs with ports, roads, buildings, irrigation and flood control facilities, and other creative works.
Historical studies of engineering teach us respect for the past and its achievements. They help us to view the present in light of the past-to discern trends and to evaluate the reasons for the great changes that have punctuated human progress. By examining the roots of engineering, we are able to sense the broad flow of history and to view the present as a part of that flow.
This helps us to put the present in its context and to take a better view of our goals, aspirations, and actions 1. Our objective in this chapter, then, is to briefly trace the development of engineering from earliest recorded times to the present day. This, of course, is a large undertaking, and with limited space available, we can only briefly outline the highlights of engineering history.
The reader is encouraged to consult If a builder build a house for a man and do not make its construction meet the requirements and a wall fall in, that builder shall strengthen the wall at his own expense.
It is not surprising that the people who populated the valleys of the Tigris and Euphrates developed significant irrigation and flood control works. Today, in Iraq, evidence of abandoned canals can still be traced by lines of embankments, lakes, and streams. The Nahrwan, a foot wide canal extended generally parallel to the Tigris River over a distance of miles 3 , irrigating an area averaging 18 miles in width 5.
Imposing masonry dams were used by the Mesopotamians to divert small tributaries into the canal. During the reign of King Sennacherib, the Assyrians completed circa B.
They built a milelong feeder canal bringing fresh water from the hills of Mount Tas to the existing Khosr River, by which the water flowed an additional 15 miles into Ninevah. At Jerwan, an elevated cut-stone aqueduct was built to carry the open canal over a small stream. This famous structure was feet long, 68 feet wide, and 28 feet at the highest point 6. It supported a channel that was approximately 50 feet wide and about 5 feet deep 2. The channel was underlain by a thick layer of concrete, the first known use of this construction material.
These engineering forerunners held top positions as the trusted advisors of the Egyptian kings. The man who held this position was a general construction expert who was known as the king's "chief of works. The annual flooding of the Nile created a need for reestablishing land boundaries. To perform these surveys, Egyptian engineers used sections of rope that had been soaked in water, dried, and then coated with a wax material to insure constant length.
See Figure 1. They may have also used primitive surveying instruments, but none has been found 7. Priscus, an ancient king of Etruscan and Greek ancestry who ruled Rome in the sixth century B. The Appian Way was the first and most famous link in a road network that radiated from Rome.
Figure 1. Aqua Appia, also named for Appius Claudius, was the first major aqueduct built in Rome. It was a low-level, largely underground work built in a tunnel or by cut-and-cover construction The Pantheon was a temple of extraordinary stateliness. Agrippa, a brilliant engineer and the adopted son of Augustus, built the Pantheon circa 17 B.
It suffered two fires and was rebuilt by Hadrian who ruled during the period A. The internal diameter of the Pantheon is equal to its height of feet. It is crowned with a coffered semispherical concrete vault. Preserved to the present day, the Pantheon embodies Rome's most imaginative engineering works It has six arches of dry stone and a total length of feet.
The roadway is feet above the river 6. The Pont du Gard was part of an ancient aqueduct that supplied water to Nimes in the south of France. Built under the direction of Agrippa during the reign of Augustus circa 27 B.
It is about feet high, and its larger arches have a span of approximately 80 feet The Pont du Gard is illustrated in Figure 1 Johann Gutenberg invented the movable type mold and is credited with the printing of the first book about By the year , books were being published on surveying, hydraulics, chemistry, mining and metallurgy, and other scientific and engineering subjects.
The advancement of science during the fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth centuries had a great impact on the technological and industrial developments that followed, and the contributions of the scientists of that time continue to be felt to the present day. Some of those scientists and their contributions to scientific knowledge are as follows.
A great artist, architect, and experimental scientist of the Italian Renaissance, he displayed genius in many areas. He is remembered more for his conceptual designs than for practical engineering works. An astronomer of German and Polish descent, he founded modern astronomy with his theory that the earth is a moving planet.
An Italian astronomer and physicist, he formulated the scientific method of gaining knowledge. Galileo made the first practical use of the telescope to study astronomy, and he is credited with the discovery of a famous law of falling bodies. Boyle was an Irish chemist and physicist who studied the compression and expansion of air and other gases and discovered that the volume of gas at a constant temperature varies inversely with its pressure Boyle's law.
An English experimental scientist, he formulated a theory of elasticity known as Hooke's law. The law states that the amount an elastic body deforms is directly proportional to the force or stress acting on it.
An English scientist and mathematician, he invented calculus, discovered the secrets of light and color, and formulated the law of universal gravitation.

Теперь уже окаменел Стратмор. Рука Сьюзан задрожала, и пейджер упал на пол возле тела Хейла. Сьюзан прошла мимо него с поразившим его выражением человека, потрясенного предательством. Коммандер не сказал ни слова и, медленно наклонившись, поднял пейджер. Новых сообщений не .
Выпустите меня! - Она испуганно смотрела на открытую дверь его кабинета. Стратмор понял, что она смертельно напугана. Он спокойно подошел к двери, выглянул на площадку лестницы и всмотрелся в темноту. Хейла нигде не было. Тогда он вернулся в кабинет и прикрыл за собой дверь, затем заблокировал ее стулом, подошел к столу и достал что-то из выдвижного ящика.
Ангел, подумал. Ему захотелось увидеть ее глаза, он надеялся найти в них избавление. Но в них была только смерть.
Она почувствовала, как по спине у нее пробежал холодок. Лицо коммандера выражало торжественную серьезность. Видимо, в его действиях было нечто такое, что ей знать не полагалось.
