I believe part of the reason is that this was the fastener sizes companies stocked. Recently I see an uptick of 10-24 usage. Curious. What is your experience? What industries have you see one or the other or both?
Biomedical Engineering is the the intersection of biology and engineering. From designing new therapies for diseases or medical devices it involves many engineering disciplines such as mechanical, electrical and chemical in application to biology (not necessarily only human biology).
My knowledge in Mechanical engineering is based in the fact that this major is based in problem solving with the help of machines where humans by themselves are not able to do the main action, for example, from the beginning of human history inventions like the wheel made easier the transportation of heavy artifacts through one distance to another, Thomas Newcomen who invented the first successful steam engine with a piston in 1712, the creation of the airplane which its based is in the aircraft made by the Wright brothers in 1903, all and more actual examples, like biomechanical suits or anything that has to do in the biomechanical area, is …
