Science and The Industrial Design Engine
Whilst at lecture, the scientist would attempt to persuade that an understanding of the cosmos is via that yellow brick road called formulae.
Observe that aircraft before you leave for somewhere far away. Take a good look at how the wings are set against the aircraft.
The pilot has taken you up to cruise height, look out along the wing. The wing is no longer straight and level and the fuselage of the aircraft would appear to be in the trough of a wave.
Wing root stress calculations will produce some of the most complicated formulae in the world.
So much so that only an independent stress office are the only people that are allowed to have the last word.
However complex these formulae are, gaze at them for ever more and they will not indicate the design model of the wing root.
