Dear Sir,
I have a question regarding an english sentance. i am unable to pay by credit card as i dont have one however i can put 5$ in an envelope and send you like i have done in the past to a self help organisation on purchace of thier cd.
my question is that in one sentance it is written without the word "related" and in another sentance it is written with the word related which means in the second sentance the things are "similar" but not the same unlike the first sentance where there is no related.
so why is there the word related there in the second sentance is it an error? . looking forward to hearing from you.

Regards

Brendan Menezes

sentance number one:

"mechanical aspects of design" and not "mecahnical related aspect of design" as in sentance number two below"

sentance number two:

"They are the designers and builders of the mechanical, thermal and fluid-flow related aspects of all such systems, including computer and feedback control of complex systems."

the full articles are given below for sentance number two to put things into context.

Mechanical Engineers play a significant role in the design and manufacturing of all of the products and systems essential to everyday modern life--from your home appliances, bikes, recreational equipment and automobiles, to satellites, wheelchairs, airplanes, robots, industrial equipment and environmental control systems. They are the designers and builders of the mechanical, thermal and fluid-flow related aspects of all such systems, including computer and feedback control of complex systems. In fact, mechanical engineers play a role in designing and manufacturing most of the things that people use--look around you and you'll see their contributions everywhere.

To design and build all of these great products properly involves a broad, basic education and significant knowledge of how to apply, interface and use computers in modern engineering systems. As engineers they work in almost every technical field imaginable, including aerospace, automotive, biomedical engineering, computer aided design and manufacturing, energy and environmental systems. Indeed, a Mechanical Engineering (M.E.) education is the broadest of all engineering disciplines, with the widest applicability and most flexibility in terms of career paths.

Mechanical engineering education involves learning how to creatively apply a strong scientific and mathematical basis to the design of safe, reliable, environmentally sound, and cost effective systems. Teamwork, communication skills and knowing how to apply and use modern computer simulations and control systems are important skills to all M.E.s. At the advanced degree level M.E.s perform the basic research needed to advance knowledge in the engineering sciences, knowledge needed to improve the world around us.

From an even wider perspective, the education of a Mechanical Engineer is very broad and focuses on the basic skills needed to be an effective problem solver in the modern world. Thus, many students combine the broad technical knowledge gained in their undergraduate M.E. studies with graduate study in M.E. Additionally, some M.E. students combine their M.E. knowledge with other technical disciplines, or use it as a basis for entry into Business, Law or Medical Schools.

EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

In terms of the range of applications and employment opportunities, M.E. students are involved in diverse projects. For instance, Mechanical Engineers design advanced materials and structures to meet the demands of supersonic and hypersonic flight and space travel. Others are involved in efforts to cleanup and preserve the earth's environment.

Employment opportunities have attracted mechanical engineers to projects involving alternative energy sources, the improvement of engineering designs and the related manufacturing processes to be more energy efficient, to avoid the creation of pollutants, environmental monitoring and re-mediation projects. M.E.'s work in the energy field on both new methods for energy generation such as solar, fuel cell and wind generated power, and also on the design of traditional electrical power plants equipped with reactors, pressure piping, heat exchangers and other specialized components. In the automobile industry, mechanical engineers design the various parts of cars. In manufacturing companies of all kinds, they develop the systems that improve and speedup production processes.

Mechanical engineers also work alongside physicians, therapists, and other medical professionals to investigate the workings of the human body and to design aids and instruments for medicine applications. Other mechanical engineers work with trainers, coaches, and athletes on the design of sporting equipment. Mechanical Engineers involved in government research assist on key policy decisions regarding technology development and use.

Overall, we give our Mechanical Engineering students a broad based education that allows them to make numerous and significant contributions to solving society's problems in a wide variety of challenging, interesting and rewarding careers.

Hello Guest,

the related in this sentence does not really make a difference to its meaning, so its just a matter of preference. If it is not needed, I prefer to leave a word out.

Dear Madam,
THank you for taking the trouble to help me with my problem, it was so prompt and took me by surprise , I thought there would be a long waiting lins in forums and i would have to wait days for as reply. I still have a doubt though, you see there is a a subtle differance in the two sentances and they are not the same, mechanical "related" aspects is different form mechanical aspects, mecahnical "related" aspects are similar but NOT the same as mechanical aspects . an example from cambridege advanced learners dictionary is "UNEMPLOYMENT" AND RELATED ISSUES. related issues are not umployment issues but realted to it.
PLease could you continue to help me with this problem.

sentance number one: (from the web)

"mechanical aspects of design" and not "mecahnical related aspect of design" as in sentance number two below"

sentance number two: (from your document)

"They are the designers and builders of the mechanical, thermal and fluid-flow related aspects of all such systems, including computer and feedback control of complex systems."

ARE the two documents the same , the related in sentance number two means that in the second sentance they are similar but not the same. but they meant to be the same?
so is it the writers error?

the full articles are given below for sentance number two to put things into context.
