https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=154252&ref=Feed
This application calculates the bolt coefficient for eccentrically loaded bolt groups using the Instantaneous Center of Rotation method (also known as the Ultimate Strength method).
<BR><BR>
The bolt coefficient C is the ratio of the factored force (or available strength) of the bolt group Pu and the shear capacity of a single bolt. Once the coefficient is known, a bolt group can be designed for any load.
<BR><BR>
Traditionally, bolt group coefficients are extracted by using tabulated values in the AISC Steel Construction Manual. However, these tables are limited to common bolt patterns, and specific load eccentricities and angles. Non-tabulated values must be extracted by using linear interpolation.
<BR><BR>
This Maple worksheet, however, calculates the bolt group coefficient for any bolt and load configuration by implementing the theory used to generate the tables.
<BR><BR>
The results agree with those presented in AISC Manual of Steel Construction: Load and Resistance Factor Design, 2nd Edition.<img src="/view.aspx?si=154252/screengrab.png" alt="Bolt Group Coefficient for Eccentric Loads" align="left"/>This application calculates the bolt coefficient for eccentrically loaded bolt groups using the Instantaneous Center of Rotation method (also known as the Ultimate Strength method).

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=154071&ref=Feed
If an object is subjected to several forces having different magnitudes and act in different directions, how can determine the magnitude and direction of the resultant total force on the object? Forces are vectors and should be added according to the definition of the vector sum. Engineering dealing with many quantities that have both magnitude and direction and can be expressed and analyzed as vectors.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153659&ref=Feed
<p>Pipework is a large part of the cost of a process plant. Plant designers need to minimize the total cost of this pipework across the lifetime of the plant. The total overall cost is a combination of individual costs related to the:</p>
<ul>
<li>pipe material,</li>
<li>installation, </li>
<li>maintenance, </li>
<li>depreciation, </li>
<li>energy costs for pumping, </li>
<li>liquid parameters, </li>
<li>required flowrate,</li>
<li>pumping efficiencies,</li>
<li>taxes,</li>
<li>and more.</li>
</ul>
<p>The total cost is not a simple linear sum of the individual costs; a more complex relationship is needed.</p>
<p>This application uses the approach described in [1] to find the pipe diameter that minimizes the total lifetime cost. The method involves the iterative solution of an empirical equation using <a href="/support/help/Maple/view.aspx?path=fsolve">Maple’s fsolve function</a> (the code for the application is in the Startup code region).</p>
<p>Users can choose the pipe material (carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum or brass), and specify the desired fluid flowrate, fluid viscosity and density. The application then solves the empirical equation (using Maple’s fsolve() function) and returns the economically optimal pipe diameter.</p>
<p>Bear in mind that the empirical parameters used in the application vary as economic conditions change. Those used in this application are correct for 1998 and 2008.</p>
