The accompanying CD-ROM features ready-to-run, customizable Excel worksheets derived from the book examples, which will be useful tools to add to any electronics engineer's spreadsheet toolbox. Engineers are looking for any and all means to increase their efficiency and add to their "bag of design tricks." Just about every electronics engineer uses Excel but most feel that the program has many more features to offer, if they only knew what they were! The Excel documentation is voluminous and electronics engineers don't have the time to read it all and sift through looking for those features that are directly applicable to their jobs and figure out how to use them. This book does that task for them-pulls out those features that they need to know about and shows them how to make use of them in specific design examples that they can then tailor to their own design needs.-

Learn to fully harness the power of Microsoft Excel® to perform scientific and engineering calculations With this text as your guide, you can significantly enhance Microsoft Excel's® capabilities to execute the calculations needed to solve a variety of chemical, biochemical, physical, engineering, biological, and medicinal problems. The text begins with two chapters that introduce you to Excel's Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) programming language, which allows you to expand Excel's® capabilities, although you can still use the text without learning VBA. Following the author's step-by-step instructions, here are just a few of the calculations you learn to perform: Use worksheet functions to work with matrices Find roots of equations and solve systems of simultaneous equations Solve ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations Perform linear and non-linear regression Use random numbers and the Monte Carlo method This text is loaded with examples ranging from very basic to highly sophisticated solutions. More than 100 end-of-chapter problems help you test and put your knowledge to practice solving real-world problems. Answers and explanatory notes for most of the problems are provided in an appendix. The CD-ROM that accompanies this text provides several useful features: All the spreadsheets, charts, and VBA code needed to perform the examples from the text Solutions to most of the end-of-chapter problems An add-in workbook with more than twenty custom functions This text does not require any background in programming, so it is suitable for both undergraduate and graduate courses. Moreover, practitioners in science and engineering will find that this guide saves hours of time by enabling them to perform most of their calculations with one familiar spreadsheet package

Through previous editions, this practical text has found a permanent spot in many introductory engineering courses by successfully combining an introduction to Excel fundamentals with a clear presentation on how Excel can be used to solve common engineering problems. Updated to ensure compatability with all recent versions of Excel, this third edition of Spreadsheet Tools for Engineers provides beginning engineering students with a strong foundation in problem solving using Excel as the modern day equivalent of the slide rule. As part of McGraw-Hill's BEST series for freshman engineering curricula, this text is particularly geared toward introductory students. The author provides plenty of background information on technical terms, and numerous examples illustrating both traditional and spreadsheet solutions for a variety of engineering problems. The first three chapters introduce the basics of problem solving and Excel fundamentals. Beyond that, the chapters are largely independent of one another. Topics covered include graphing data, converting units, analyzing data, interpolation and curve fitting, solving equations, evaluating integrals, writing macros, and comparing economic alternatives.

As every Engineer needs to do many daily calculations especially using modern standards like EUROCODES, the need to write custom software solutions is more and more real. Especially if standards include many complex formulas which are hardly calculated using pocket computers as it was 30 years ago. Then it came programmable pocket computers, I clearly remember as I had SHARP programmable computer, where it was possible to write a complex software, but you couldn't print the results as it is possible now. So today it is possible just by using Microsoft Excel and its programming abilities to write real software which can solve all daily engineering calculations with ease. What does an engineer need? So what does an engineer need when creating calculations? First there are input parameters, which should be entered on a very simple and a quick way, then a simple sketch as a graphical representation of the basis of calculation with annotations of input parameters. After that engineer needs to define the mathematical procedure which could be very simple, but it should also enable him, to write also more complex formulas or iterations. This is very easy to do with Excel. In this book I will show you that you do not need to be a software developer to create your own customized engineering calculations in minutes. What is maybe the most important, you can update formulas in your calculation any time you want. This is the solution that every engineer needs, because it offers open-source solution with powerful programmable tools, but on the other side simple enough to be done instantly. We will learn the following topics: - How to create cells where input parameters should be entered - How to create a sketch with annotations of input parameters - How to prepare cells where results of calculation will be written - How to create a push button, where you will trigger start of the calculation - How to write code to perform calculation - How to write code to display the results of calculation - How to perform calculation This book will also show you how to write the software for practical engineering calculation for structural analysis. I will show you in detail, how to enter data, define formulas and actually perform calculation, including how to display results and format cells for results of calculation. I will provide you with an easy-to-follow material explanation, all steps including source code will be explained in detail.
