Any matter for an object in the world exists in one of four distinct states, i.e. solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. The solid state is a common state for the majority of products around us. To investigate the behaviours of solids, it is necessary to know its geometry and shape. Similarly, to investigate the behaviours of fluid, gas, or plasma in a certain volume, the geometry and shape of boundary surfaces of a fine volume is also needed to be defined.

An engineering design consists of (i) a design analysis where a design candidate is analysed...
