Roark’s Formulas for Excel Universal Technical Systems, Inc.

Between two great engineering tools.
The perfect marriage... Between two great engineering tools.

Excel provides a calculation tool that everyone uses and knows...

Roark’s gives you the formulas to solve thousands of problems...

Put them together and design analysis becomes a
Snap!

Roark’s Formulas for Stress and Strain by Warren Young & Richard Budynas
Ultimate reference for designers, engineers and analysts who make design calculations for stresses, deflections, etc. Provides you with the required formulas in an easy-to-use, thumb-through format. Imagine these same formulas, ready to solve, in Excel...

With Roark’s for Excel you can:
Enter your numbers and get solutions instantly.

With Roark’s for Excel you can:
Enter your numbers and get solutions instantly. Create plots of deflection, stress, bending moments and more.

With Roark’s for Excel you can:
Enter your numbers and get solutions instantly. Create plots of deflection, stress, bending moments and more. Solve problems with multiple loads.

Create Reports with Diagrams from the Book

With Roark’s Formulas... Analyze design alternatives without hours of math or programming. No need to use look-up tables for coefficients. Material data is set up for you... Or add your own custom materials.

Let’s see how Roark’s for Excel solves a typical problem...

Launch Roark’s is launched from a toolbar on your Excel menu.

Menu The easy-to-use menu takes you through hundreds of cases to find the one you need to solve your problem. Diagrams of each case appear just like in the book, making the selection of the proper case and load condition easy.

Setup Once you have chosen your case RFE will ask you to decide which inputs, outputs, plots and tables you would like to see, which will help you customize your screens and reports.

Load RFE loads all the information into Excel and provides starting values. Table look-ups for coefficients are already done. Enter your values and Excel calculates your solution.

Materials You can select from a wide range of materials or enter your own.

Plots Plots are created when appropriate for the case, including:
Deflection Shear Slope Bending Moment And more

Report Wizard Reports can be created with custom headings and logos.
Change fonts or margins. Save your report as PDF or RTF. Diagrams from the book are included in the report.

Superposition Wizard To calculate multiple loads on beams and plates the Superposition Wizard does the trick. A special report showing the combined loads is generated.

Power User Mode For those of you who want more flexibility in your known and unknowns, the power user mode can be used.

From a Professional Standpoint...
“This product is awesome! Both the idea of implementing Roark in Excel as well as how UTS has done it are brilliant. No engineer should be without it.”    --Tom Mincer SpreadsheetWorld.com Well known pioneer and educator in the application of Excel/VBA in the field of Engineering

From a Professional Standpoint...
“As a TK Solver / Roark user of nearly two decades, I am very impressed to see that Roark's formulas is now presented as a robust “plug and play” module within Excel. Just select the model(s) you want, select the parameters of interest, solve and then click to produce a well presented report that clearly and accurately presents the data in a coherent and understandable form for your peers. If a picture paints a thousand words, then Roark's Formulas for Excel solves a million Engineering problems. I look forward to using it alongside my regular finite element stress analysis software and actual mechanical testing as a confidence booster to give accurate engineering judgement and results.” --Mike Hagland Senior Materials Analyst Gyrus Medical Limited

From a Professional Standpoint...
“UTS looks like they have another winner on their hands. First they merged one of the most popular engineering references with TK Solver’s backsolving capability to create Interactive Roark’s Formulas for TK Solver. It is an application that simplifies an engineer’s life immensely. I can’t count the hours it has saved me from re–creating spreadsheets from a textbook. Now, UTS has done it again. They’ve taken the same powerful application and wrapped it in arguably the most widely used engineer's tool… amazing. UTS continues to be the best kept secret in the engineering software world.” --Wayne Pilgrim Weatherford Incorporated
