Abstract or Summary
  • Engineering is largely concerned with models and modelling. Models provide a context in which decisions are made. Here the modelling process is considered in a general sense and then the relationship with engineering models is developed. For understanding, a first step is to differentiate and categorize. Thus ten types of engineering model are proposed and their purposes with respect to professional decision making are discussed. The role of models in engineering failures is also considered.
