Dear Sir,
i am having a problem with the following sentance as it is a bit ambiguous.
the sentance is :
They are the designers and builders of the mechanical, thermal and fluid-flow related aspects of all such systems

Does the related word apply to 'mechanical', 'thermal' and 'fluid flow' OR does the related word apply only to the last word 'fluid flow',
looking fortward to your reply,
Thanking You,
Brendan Menezes BEng Chemical Engineering (UK)

OK, I see your concept need.
In English this statement is a short cut for the following statement.

They are designers and builders of mechanical related aspects of ..., they are designers and builders of thermal related aspects of ..., and they are designers and builders of fluid-flow related aspects of ....... .

I hope that clears it up...
Thank you,
