    Metric system definition is - a decimal system of weights and measures based on the meter and on the kilogram. The New Metric System for Engineers. The engineering community has been placing a great deal of emphasis lately on metrics and their use in project development. The following metrics are probably among the most valuable for an engineering project: The Pizza Metric.

    For a long time now, engineers use the metric system, now known as the Systeme International d’Unites (International System of Units) or SI, in calculations. The SI base units which include second, meter, kilogram, ampere, kelvin, mole, and candela have been standard measurements in the world of science and engineering. engineers who are required to develop components to metric specifications in advance of availability of applicable American National Standards. The book will also be a valuable tool in guiding the many technical committees and subcommittees which will be working on .

      The metric system was adopted under the motto “For all the people, all the time.” It was intended to be a universal system, a system to be used by the common people as well as engineers and. Metric system - Designing Buildings Wiki - Share your construction industry knowledge. The metric system is a decimalised measurement system used widely throughout the world for weights and measures in everyday life, trade, science and industry. It can be used for example to express the weight of vegetables, the speed of a train, the height of a child, the intensity of light, the volume of.
