Top 5 Android Apps for Engineers

February 27th, 2014

Engineering specific mobile apps are making life easier for mechanical engineers and other scientific disciplines as well. While there are many worthy iOS engineering apps, here are five of the top engineering apps on the Android platform. Best of all, some of the apps are free!

EngCalc for Formulas and Property Tables

 Having an app laden with standard engineering formulas and property tables can be a godsend for engineers. EngCalc, available at the Google Play store for $19.99, is just such an app. It covers a wide area of engineering math, including mechanical, hydraulic, structural, machine design, electrical, fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, as well as thermodynamics.

Engineering Unit Converter

Engineers spend a lot of time converting between different units. Engineering Unit Converter is a free app that makes that process a bit more convenient. The easy to use interface features a host of conversions and a small memory footprint.

Fluid Mechanics Converter

Another useful free unit converter is Fluid Mechanics Converter. Handling the math around flow rates and viscosity is now easier for engineers using the app’s straightforward interface. Calculations involving mass, volume, and three different kinds of viscosity (dynamic, oil and water, kinematic) are easily accessible.

The Engineering Cookbook is a Useful Reference Guide

When traveling or at a work site, having an engineering reference guide in the form of a mobile app makes things easier. The Engineering Cookbook is a free app offering quick access to a host of useful materials, including heating and cooling load estimating, sound and vibration guidelines, ventilation rates for indoor air quality, in addition to a variety of design formulas and conversion factors.

Mechanical Engineering Magazine goes Mobile

A mobile version of Mechanical Engineering magazine is available for Android platform. The app is a free download, but some of the issues require an in-app purchase. Expect useful articles from both current and past issues.

These worthy engineering apps on the Android platform should add a measure of convenience to your daily work routine.
