Why reissue a book on engineering design first written nearly thirty years ago? It was well ahead of its time in , and although much of its approach is now commonplace, plenty still remains to be adopted. But above all, where other books have a few pages on the key problems of design, which areBrand: Springer-Verlag London. Get this from a library! Conceptual design for engineers. [M J French] -- "Unlike most texts in the field, this book relates design closely to the science and mathematics that are students' chief concern, and shows their relevance. It shows how to make simple but.   Conceptual design is the first step of the multiphase process involved in creating a new product. Whether it’s a building, software application or gadget, it’s important to come up with a general concept before proceeding. The conceptual design phase is . Conceptual Structural Design aims to ‘bridge the gap’ between engineers’ and architects’ understanding of structural form and highlight the importance of close collaboration between all members of the design team throughout a project. This book is presented in two parts. The first part investigates sources of inspiration for developing structural form, learning from natural forms.

The design engineer works closely with the manufacturing engineer throughout the product life cycle. The design process is an information intensive one, and design engineers have been found to spend 56% of their time engaged in various information behaviours, including 14% actively searching for information. Key works: The label 'conceptual engineering' was coined by Richard Creath in his Creath Like Creath, many contemporary authors in the field link their work to Rudolf Carnap’s method of explication (Carnap ), which is a kind of conceptual engineering designed for the purposes of contains a very helpful discussion of Carnapian explications.
