Proposal: Engineering

Yes, I know they are on topic on Physics.SE and I have posted 3 such question there - no answers on 2 and the third has a non-answer. (Nothing against Physics.SE, but by their own admission, there is a major bias of expertise in the theoretical side).

So, my question is, would experimental physics themed questions, such as the practicalities of an optics design etc be on topic here?


I'd definitly say that questions of the type "how can I build " would be on topic.

Remember, engineering practice may contain experiemnts too - measuring the performace curve of a pump would be one example.

Looking at experimental physics, I think questions of the type "I have this hypothesis, how can I test it" should be off topic. Here, I mean question were the focus is to translate the hypothesis into something testable in the first place.
