Engineers understand the value of working as a team towards a common goal and that is how this book (and the connected resources) came about. When I started my engineering consultancy business, I considered monetizing the analysis tools that I had at that point. Instead, I made them available for free online. The free spreadsheets generated a surprising amount of goodwill and useful technical feedback and it confirmed the good-natured and generous nature of the global engineering community.
That experience inspired the creation of the Abbott Aerospace Technical Library. The Library aims to make useful engineering tools and texts freely. If you have found the material that we host and the tools we create to be useful and would like to help; you can volunteer some of your own time, work or tools, or you can donate to help maintain and expand our engineering resources. You can donate from our technical library homepage:
