Where we have a spreadsheet available for the analysis methods in this book we have provided a link to the spreadsheet in our library. You are welcome to download these spreadsheets to use, modify and redistribute them as you wish. We just ask that you provide a credit and if possible a link to the Abbott Aerospace Technical Library. These spreadsheets replace the worked examples that you would expect to find in a similar textbook so there are no worked examples shown in this book.
The spreadsheets are provided free of charge, ‘as-is’ with no guarantee. We have made every effort to make sure they are accurate and correct, but we are human and despite our best efforts we are as prone to error as anyone else. If you do find an error, please inform us so we can correct and share the corrected version with the rest of the library users.
Most of the spreadsheets use the XL-Viking add-in, this is available as a commercial download at this location: XL-Viking.com. This add-in displays the math in the spreadsheets in an interactive way and updates real time with the values in the spreadsheet.
If you wish to contribute an analysis spreadsheet to the library, we will gladly review any submission. If we add your sheet to the library, we will give you a permanent credit in the library and on the face of the spreadsheet.
We, like many other people and companies, have developed a way of using Microsoft Excel™ as a technical report creation tool. All spreadsheets are created (as far as possible) in what we consider to be a final report format. All of our sheets conform to the same format and layout.
The spreadsheet tools are updated on a regular basis with corrections and improvements. The user is recommended to check the Abbott Aerospace website regularly to ensure they are using the latest and best version available.
