Today, the spreadsheet is an essential tool for engineers. More than 20 years ago, Craig Christy started using a spreadsheet as a way of keeping notes. His practice has evolved into Engineering with the Spreadsheet, a valuable manual for engineers working with Excel. Christy first introduces basic spreadsheet techniques and more advanced applications that may be unfamiliar to even experienced spreadsheet users. He then applies Excel spreadsheets in preparing engineering calculations for an exhaust stack and an elevated storage tank. The book and CD-ROM present more than 50 actual templates in Microsoft Excel that demonstrate the techniques and specific applications for concrete, wind and seismic issues, foundation soil loading, the vortex shedding of tall stacks, and other engineering issues. Beneficial to professional engineers and college students alike, Engineering with the Spreadsheet is a comprehensive manual that structural engineers will use on their next! projects.
