Actually we DO have equations for all the physics that relate to it.
They teach the basics in a course called "statics", then when they start moving they call it "dynamics".
Then you get into solid mechanics/Mechanics of Deformable solids (think steel as a sponge).

Then there is of course FEA, which is just an application of MODS, and really just a massive mess/"system" of equations.

Disraeli was pretty close: actually, there are Lies, Damn lies, Statistics, Benchmarks, and Delivery dates.
