The nonlinear equation is a fundamentally important area of study in mathematics, and the numerical solutions of the nonlinear equations are also an important part of it. Fuzzy sets introduced by Zedeh are an extension of classical sets, which have several applications in engineering, medicine, economics, finance, artificial intelligence, decision-making, and so on. The most special types of fuzzy sets are fuzzy numbers. The important fuzzy numbers are trapezoidal fuzzy and triangular fuzzy numbers, which have several applications. In this research article, we propose an efficient numerical iterative method for estimating roots of fuzzy nonlinear equations, which are based on the special type of fuzzy number called triangular fuzzy number. Convergence analysis proves that the order of convergence of the numerical method is three. Some real-life applications are considered as numerical test problems from engineering, which contain fuzzy quantities in the parametric form. Engineering models include fractional conversion of nitrogen-hydrogen feed into ammonia and Van der Waal's equation for calculating the volume and pressure of a gas and motion of the object under constant force of gravity. Numerical illustrations are given to show the dominance efficiency of the newly constructed iterative schemes as compared to existing methods in the literature.
