This course will cover spreadsheet based analysis for general purpose engineering use. It will focus on using basic calculations, formulas and graphs within Microsoft Excel.
Several sample problems will be modeled, accompanied by sample spreadsheets which may be downloaded and used for understanding the examples.
In this way, the sensitivity of the solution to each variable may be determined. Design examples will be given in the areas of stress analysis, trajectory and engineering economics.
Additional topics will include decision making logic, and goal-seeking (a form of automated trial and error).
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
Please Note: Course Requires Microsoft Excel™ or similar program, (such as Open Office Calc).
