  • Engine displacement, the total volume of air/fuel mixture an engine can draw in during one complete engine cycle
  • Displacement (fluid), an object immersed in a fluid pushes the fluid out of the way
  • Positive displacement meter, a pump or flow meter which processes a definite fluid volume per revolution
  • Displacement has several meanings related to ships and boats
    • Displacement hull, where the moving hull's weight is supported by buoyancy alone and it must displace water from its path rather than planing on the water's surface
    • Displacement speed, a rule of thumb for non planing watercraft to estimate their theoretical maximum speed
    • Displacement (ship), several related measurements of a ship's weight
  • Insulation displacement connector, a type of electrical connector

Famous quotes containing the word engineering:

    Mining today is an affair of mathematics, of finance, of the latest in engineering skill. Cautious men behind polished desks in San Francisco figure out in advance the amount of metal to a cubic yard, the number of yards washed a day, the cost of each operation. They have no need of grubstakes.
    Merle Colby, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
