The theory behind Phoenix’s CASoS Engineering structure is that Applications drive the growth of the discipline and will sustain the community of practice. This structure is depicted as outwardly growing spiral (illustrated at right) in which each application adds knowledge to extend the core of Engineering Theory and Experiment within an expanding Environment of Data Analysis and Computational Simulation.
