Engineering Design Handbook - Environmental Series; Part IV - Life Cycle Environments

This handbook presents information on the 
environment to which Army materiel is 
subjected during its life cycle. It is directed to 
the materiel design engineer (l) to alert him 
to the multiplicity Of environmental effects 
on materiel. and (2) to provide him with 
sufficient information to identify specifie 
environmental etfects that require more 
extensive analysis. ne emphasis in the 
chapters that follow is on the totality of 
factors characterizing a climate. on the 
totality of effects experienced by classes of 
materiel. and on the totality of thetor 
combinations experienced in the life eyele 
separated into logistic and operational phases. 
nat the presentation is incomplete reneets 
on the limited uvuilubility of information on 
life cycle environments and on practical 
limitations on the recovery Of this informa- 
tion from diverse sources. 
ms handbook is Purt Four Of the 
Environmental *ties Of Engineering 
Handbooks. Part One. Basic Envbonmental 
Concepts, introduces the series. Parts Two 
und ntree provide extensive information on 
environmental' factors taken singly. and Part 
Five provides u glossary. Although this series 
is coordinated. each purt muy be employed 
separately. nere is. therefore, a desirable 
degree of overlap in the contents, although 
the objective Of each of the handbooks is 
distinct from the others. For exumple, a 
pervasive environmental factor may be dig- 
cussed for different purposes in a number of 
chapters; e.g.. temperature is the subject of 
One chapter in Part Two where it is treated as 
a distinct and is treated in other 
chapters in Parts Two and nree where its 
;tions with other factors are brought

Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets

FREE ANALYSIS SPREADSHEETS 3 Over the last 10 years we have developed hundreds of spreadsheet tools to help us with our structural analysis work. We have made these available through the Abbott Aerospace web site and the XL Viking project. We have now brought them into the technical library. They have been updated, improved and the collection has been expanded to cover more analysis methods than ever before.

The XL-Viking Add-In for Excel

XL-Viking 2 We created the XL-Viking Excel add-in to satisfy our own need to make Excel a better engineering tool. XL-Viking shows your Excel Formula in a way that makes sense and brings essential new functionality to Microsoft Excel by providing an additional user interface and easy to use functions.

The Indispensable Tool For Engineers, Mathematicians, Scientists, Accountants and Teaching Professionals!


Technical Papers & Reports

This is our collection of public domain references. All of the material we make available has been placed in the public domain by the authors/owners. If you believe this is not the case and any of the library material is not in the public domain please let us know. If you have any reference material that you would like to see included in the library we would love to hear from you.

Market Analysis and Market Information

Our newest addition to the library is an on-going series of articles on the aircraft and aerospace market. These are part quantitative and part qualitative and introduce a new aspect to the competencies within Abbott Aerospace.
