  • Complex Engineering Systems: Failure Of The Most Complex Engineering Systems

    839 Words  | 4 Pages

    Abstract One of the most complex engineering system is failure of an aircraft component which leads to the catastrophic consequences which result in events that cause loss of life and also damage the aircraft. I’m doing investigation on defect and failure in the aircraft structures which is important for the prevention of further catastrophic incidents. One of the main reason for the failure of the aircraft components or structure under high stress which is during the operation where the component

  • Complex System of Self-Organizing

    1914 Words  | 8 Pages

    Complex System of Self-Organizing Steven Johnson in the selection “The Myth of the Ant Queen” talks about the intelligence and ability of members in a complex low level system that leads to self-organize into a higher level system. Johnson emphasizes that self-organizing system is not posed or controlled from the outside source rather it is set and controlled based on internal intelligence of each individual. The bottom up system is not like a pacemaker, organizing, controlling and telling the rest

  • The Interesting, Complex Digestive System

    1538 Words  | 7 Pages

    The human digestive system is a bodily process made up of many systems, organs and substances that break down food both physically and chemically for use by the body. But what exactly is human digestion and what happens to food as it moves through the digestive system? “…[digestion] is a group of organs working together to convert food into energy and basic nutrients to feed the entire body” (Tim Taylor). There are three major bodily mechanisms that contribute to the process of digestion. The

  • Irreducibly Complex Systems: Intelligent Designer or Guide?

    1371 Words  | 6 Pages

    controversial debate regarding the existence of an intelligent designer, specifically, the idea of irreducibly complex systems. Michael Behe defines this as “a single system composed of several well-matched, interacting parts that contribute to the basic function, wherein the removal of any one of the parts causes the system to effectively cease functioning… An irreducibly complex biological system, if there is such a thing, would be a powerful challenge to Darwinian evolution” (Behe, 1998). On one side

That event, while troublesome, often does not pose any significant danger to people. It is a useful microcosm, however, because cars, like other complex systems, will almost certainly malfunction at some point during use. While we cannot prove the following assertion for sure, empirical data and observations
