H Real Food/Fake Food: Why You Don’t Know What You’re Eating and What You Can Do About It as the Hubble telescopend the Challenger The problem with this book I think is that he never looks t the failure of the minds eye or practical engineering Ex Tay Bridge disaster nd the transformation in Britian from practical to theoretical based engineeringB Preface1 The minds eye is the nonverbal process that n engineer uses to manipulate devices in his mind 2 This book examines the significance of nonverbal thought in engineering3 Until the mid 20th engineers were taught how to understand engineering drawings by making them4 They understood the nature of materials through experience5 Since WWII engineering education has trended way from nonverbal nonmathematical knowledgea Engineering sciences re higher in status nd easier to teachb The engineering education which ignores nonverbal learning will produce graduates who re ignorant of the way the real world differs from the mathematical worldC The nature of engineering design1 Two steps to design Conversion of minds eye visions to drawings drawings converted to finished product2 Design is not formal seuential process that flowchart can capture3 Design includesa Empirical observations mental invention prerotation of tiresb Design is lso ffected by the engineers style Ex Edison s style included rotating drum with stylusD The minds eye1 Ex To find ones position from map the minds eye is reuired to convert 2D to 3D information2 The minds eye is in the right side of the brain Mr Darcy's Cottage of Earthly Delights: Shades of Pride and Prejudice artistic musicalnd spatial bility3 There is less of status for this visual thinking Thinking in words scientific has prestigeE The tools of visualization1 These tools began in the Renaissance2 Pictorial perspective Allows the representation of 3D objects3 Orthographic projection 3 views of n object Typically called n engineering drawing4 Models provide tactile nd visual informationF The computer overthrows the minds eye1 After WWII change occurred in engineering design education or practice began to loose out in favor of the prestigious enginee.

Ring science mathematical theory 2 The computer has replaced much of the minds eye in engineering3 CAD programs will perform the stress testing that was once done by slide rule4 The slide rule provided the engineer with The Myth of Genesis and Exodus and the Exclusion of Their African Origins a feel for the problem5 In the 1980s engineering education hasbandoned the graphical representations of knowledge in favor of the ccurate nalytical mathematical methods6 The paradox is that despite the belief that nalytical tools will increase precision there have been great number of high profile engineering failuresa Three Mile Island A failure of judgment not calculation solenoid valve Hubble Challenger Engineering is not Yoga Kitchen: Divine Recipes from the Shoshoni Yoga Retreat a mathematical or scientific discipline but rather one of guess worknd judgment calls This book provides Design Works: How to Tackle Your Toughest Innovation Challenges Through Business Design an overview of hownd why this is s well s criticism of the prevailing wisdom nd history of when the shift happened Being neither scientist nor n engineer I don t know what my view is worth I think one can call it philosophical book bout engineering I m not sure if I can follow the uthor s view but for me it is challenging one I like to be challenged one that keeps your mind sharp nd wake But nyway the book contains many interesting references to other books nd marvellous pictures that seem extremely interesting to read A good book for layman like me with n interest for science engineering nd philosophy I enjoyed this book Chapter 7 is pretty strident critiue of engineering education Loyalty and Lies (Chastity Falls, and informs usability studiess well s describing series of engineering failures This has been one of my favorite books It is hard to know how to write short review of it Suffice to say that that most essential of elements to engineering design the bility to see what is not there is treated fully Jeep.
