The word, 'engineering ' comes from the Latin word ingenera. This means to implant , generate or produce. In the late Middle Ages, it was linked to the making and operating of military hardware. Engineering was defined at the beginning of the 19th century. Problem solving is common to all engineering work. The problem may involve quantitative or qualitative factors.
Many different applications of Engineering Science can be utilised in solving problems in Petroleum Engineering. For instance, density measurements of rock are used to compute their mechanical and physical properties and strength. They measure the compressional wave velocity of sound through the rock and the shear wave velocity and use these with the density of the rock to compute: the rocks compressive strength is the comprsssive stress that causes a rock to fail, the rocks flexibility, the relationship between stress and deformation of a rock. These measurements are useful to design programs to drill wells into the Earth and to design wells that produce oil and gas.
It may be physical or economic, it may require abstract mathematics or common sense. Engineering is of great importance when dealt with the creative synthesis or design, putting ideas together to create a new optimum solution. It combines the fields of science and maths to solve real world problems that improve the world around us. What really distinguishes an engineer is his ability to implement ideas in a cost effective and practical approach. This ability to take a thought, or abstract idea, and translate it into reality is what is what separates an engineer from
