Engineering problems differ from crude scientific problems by the definiteness of their aim. They are created by the industrial development of the country, and their solution forms the next step in the progress of this development. The problems in pure science do not have this intimate connection with the present state of the technical arts; they affect it in so far only as their solution contributes additional means for the solution of the existing engineering problems and leads gradually to the formulation of new ones. Public demand is the driving force which impels the engineer in his study of any given problem; the loosest kind of a coupling connects the work of the crude scientist with public demand. This does not mean, of course, the existence of any public indifference in this respect.
