  Combat engineering - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The difference between a military engineer and a combat engineer is that a combat engineer usually operates during battle and under fire, while a military engineer is mostly not directly involved in the fighting.
This EBG combat engineering vehicle is used by the engineers of the French Army for a variety of missions.
The most notable engineers of ancient times were the Romans, who constructed huge siege-machines (catapults, battering rams and siege towers) and were responsible for constructing fortified wooden camps and paved roads for their legions.

Armored bulldozers are a standard tool of Combat engineering battalions, and the IDF has gained some notoriety for their use of armored tractors for urban warfare in the Al-Aqsa Intifada.
Although the Israeli Engineering Corps had used D9 bulldozers since the 1960's (including in the Six Day War and Yom Kippur War), the D9 first rose to public attention in Operation Defensive Shield, and later in demolition of structures and shrubbery (one was ended with the consequential death of Rachel Corrie).
The Israeli Engineering Corps is using the D9 for a wide variety of engineering tasks: digging moats, clearing mines, mounting sand barriers and building fortifications, as well as clearing terrain obstacles and opening routes to Armored fighting vehicles.

Engineering Vehicles have been an important part of wars since the latter half of the 20th century.
These vehicles are typically assigned in company strength to regimental combat teams for the purpose of digging prepared positions for infantry and vehicles, clearing or creating obstacles on the battlefield, and building bridges and fiords over rivers.
The engineer company was decimated almost to a man. The Engineering Vehicles cut down the banks to the river and prepared the river bottom for a 'Mech crossing.

Combat engineering vehicles (CEVs) are armoured vehicles built for engineering works at the battlefield or for transportation of sappers.
Most of the CEVs are armoured fighting vehicles that may be based on a tank chassis and have special attachments in order to breach obstacles.
Such attachment may include dozer blade, mine rollers, cranes etc. One example of engineering vehicles from this kind are bridgelaying tanks, which replace the turret with a segmented hydraulic bridge.

If a vehicle performing a breaching action through a bocage hedgerow is fired upon using direct fire, use the flank armor of the vehicle unless it is equipped with hedgerow cutting devices.
Vehicles which did not have these devices were forced to go OVER the hedgerow, and exposed their belly armor while doing so.
Engineers would often wire the trees on either side of a road before contact with the enemy was expected.

The specific objective of this work is to design a space heating system for electric vehicles which has minimum weight, volume, cost and environmental impact relative to electric-resistance heaters and fossil-fueled heaters.
The prototype of this system is to have sufficient capacity to meet the heating load of 800 W over a 5-hour period for an existing twenty-two-foot electric bus, which has been "winterized" with added insulation, multi-pane windows, air sealing, and other conservation measures.
The results of this study are useful not only for vehicle space heating for also for battery thermal management and in addition for solar energy storage systems in general.

A parameterised generic launch vehicle design is subjected to performance evaluation using the ORBITER model which is capable of optimising both the design and trajectory of the vehicle.
However, the technologies required for an SSTO vehicle were considered throughout the study because the Phase I development and test programs are structured to focus on three crucial areas in the development of a cost-effective SSTO vehicle: lightweight materials for the tanks and primary structure, efficient propulsion systems, and multimission reusability and operability.
In the propulsion area, a significant improvement in the thrust-to-weight (F/W) ratio (sea-level) of the engines is necessary—compared to the F/W ratio of the two existing large-thrust liquid oxygen/liquid hydrogen engines, the Russian RD-0120 and the U.S. space shuttle main engine (SSME).
