New template for static calculations

Postby calc4fem » Mon Nov 16, 2009 7:45 pm

How many civil engineers are there? And how many of them use the OpenOffice Calc with OpenOffice Basic?
I write the template "calc4fem"for frames, trusses and beams static calculation, and now I want to know your opinions about. May be somebody test it with me? Also you can write to me any requirements.

Nice idea. Do you plan to offer a possibillity to extract the numbers for the geometry of the construction from an OOo Drawing?
As for the maths, I won't be able to do an accurate review, at least not anytime soon. But even if it's reviewed in much detail, it'll still need a disclaimer to hold people using it for their construction wrongly and afterwards wondering why it collapsed from complaining or worse.

Thank you.
It's not a main task for me now. Calc4fem is only the half-finished template, for engineering creations. I'm going to complete some user functions, to work by the next scheme

An engineer can make your own spreadsheets with the template (for example “crane beam check”, or “parametric triangle truss calculation”, etc.)
This code converts the data to the .rwi format for FrameWork freeware. It is a good program, it also works on Linux with winehq.org.
I think - it's unfair, that is so many engineering spreadsheets for Excel and so few for OOoCalc
