Network Synthesis | Inductor | Series And Parallel Circuits
The process of design depends on the success of two highly generative (and therefore seemingly subjective) stages: design synthesis and ideation. These phases, while delineated in design subject matter as separate stages with discrete boundaries, in fact flow and intersect over and over throughout the generative stages of artifact creation. They are driven by contextual research, and they produce design solutions with formal resonance, but these stages are the "magic" of Design, and it is thus necessary to better understand what occurs during these phases of creation.
DIRECTED LOSSY SYNTHESIS AND NETWORK OPTIMIZATION
The goal of Design Synthesis is to develop an understanding of the design opportunity that exists. Contextual research, competitive research, or standard academic research is used to gather data, but that data alone does not indicate the potential for strategic design thinking; the data must be analyzed, organized, and understood. Thus, design synthesis is an organizationally generative process for analyzing qualitative data. This stage creates a structured framework for design solutions; it is the phase of design process in which the design constraints are identified and established, and the design problem itself begins to become better defined. It is a messy phase with strategic implications and strategic importance.

Green Chemistry Principle #3 - American Chemical Society
Cha. This course focuses on the application of a variety of mathematical techniques to solve real-world problems that involve modeling, mathematical and numerical analysis, and scientific computing. Concepts, calculations and the ability to apply principles to physical problems are emphasized. Ordinary differential equations, linear algebra, complex analysis, numerical methods, partial differential equations, probability and statistics, etc., are among the techniques that would be applied to problems in mechanical, electrical, chemical and civil engineering. Examples are drawn from fluid mechanics, heat transfer, vibration of structures, electromagnetics, communications and other applied topics. Program development and modification are expected as well as learning to use existing codes. Prerequisite: E72. 3 credit hours. (Every other year; Spring semester.)
