  • Spreadsheet software -- an unappreciated engineering tool
    databases, and postprocesses finite-element results. And it has other features that users sometimes aren't aware of. They include: , basically a NewtonRaphson numerical algorithm. Imagine having a spreadsheet calculation for the second moment of area of a given shape with a particular width. Back-solving
  • Software Review: Software speeds engineering calculations
    case, there are often lots of numbers to crunch. In the past, the sheer volume of calculations often meant resorting to approximations and best guesses. When spreadsheet software came along, the technical community quickly realized it could be used for engineering calculations. But spreadsheets
  • Software Review: Software For Free-Flowing Designs
    Expressions (in mathematical terms, expressions are combinations of symbols representing a value), and an Excel spreadsheet. After I build a model of any size, the title blocks let me easily pick the proper size sheet to use as a working drawing. Common Expressions are great for sketching and later
  • Math software solves equations, and more
    or output, text, graphics, or a combination of these. You can express math input using a broad subset of Mathematica's language. And if you've ever wondered about the equations in an Excel spreadsheet, which hides this information behind each cell, you will appreciate how a notebook lays out
  • Orr on Engineering: The engineering life: Trust -- or trussed?
    update our trust. Each new experience adds to or detracts from it. When someone we trust lets us down, we are hurt and disappointed and quickly recalibrate our opinion of their ability to keep a commitment. It 's not too different with software. Whether it 's an O/S, FEA program, or spreadsheet
  • Fluid Flow Software vs. Spreadsheets for Piping System Design & Analysis
    The traditional approach for sizing pipelines in fluid piping systems is done using spreadsheet programs such as Microsoft (R) Excel (R). Spreadsheets provide a platform for organizing data and performing the single pipeline calculations for pipeline friction loss. If done correctly, spreadsheets
  • Non-FEA companies assist with simulations
    You expect analysis news from FEA software developers, but how about from Microsoft? A user has analyzed three versions of a bracket by typing different sizes into a spreadsheet that feeds SimOffice. The software, based on the MSC.Software's MD Nastran, is capable of linear static, buckling
  • Visual System White Paper (.pdf)
    -to-end system design, while also embracing legacy approaches with the incorporation of spreadsheet views.
  • UV-VIS Spectroscopy of Tannins and Phenols in Red Wine
    250 to 650 nm. A DOS routine was written to automatically collect and transfer ten sets of data from the SpectraSuite software into and Excel TM spreadsheet. Data was collected from either ten different cuvettes (inter-cuvette measurements) or from a single cuvette that was repeatedly measured after
  • Looking Through Matter: Quantitative IR Imaging When Observing Through IR Windows
    to calculate the transmission spectra. The second and third step of the analysis involves simple spreadsheet programs.
