Ten iPad Apps for Engineers

August 19th, 2014

For many engineers, a tablet computer has become an indispensible tool, whether it is an iPad or one of the many Android models. A whole host of engineering apps help make the work day more productive. Here’s a selection of 10 iPadĀ apps for engineers available on the iOS platform.

1. iEngineer gets to the nuts and bolts of the matter. This app provides an easy to navigate database all about screws, bolts, and more.

2. HVAC Professional offers those involved in the heating and air industry a collection of formulas and other related information to help make their job easier.

3. Mechanical engineers will be pleased with Lux Calc Fluid Prop, an app that calculates the thermophysical properties of fluids typically involved in heat transfer.

4. Graphing Calculator is an app useful for professional engineers, scientists, and students studying anything related to mathematics. It is able to plot and trace multiple equations at once.

5. TouchCalc offers a range of mathematical functionality, including statistical analysis and bit logic. The app also easily handles traditional math calculations.

6. Mechanical Engineer is an app that lives up to its name. It provides over 300 formulas commonly used by mechanical engineers.

7. Another app with a name that hints at its use, Professional Engineer offers similar functionality as Mechanical Engineer, but with a formula collection that spans multiple engineering disciplines.

8. Engineering Unit Conversion is essentially a tablet-based version of those unit conversion tables needed by many professional engineers. Like TouchCalc, it is a useful app for engineers, scientists, and math students.

9. Engineers and designers looking for an app to do some quick technical drawings need to check out FingerCAD. The app can handle most drawings typical of larger desktop-based CAD systems.

10. Speaking of CAD, if you need an app able to view standard CAD DWG files, then TurboViewer X is your choice. The app can access drawings stored on the Cloud or through FTP.

MultiEducator Mechanical Engineering App

April 25th, 2013

Those of you looking for a robust mechanical engineering app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch need to check out Mechanical Engineer available at the App Store from MultiEducator. Covered in passing in a previous post here at The Talley Group, let’s take a more detailed look at this excellent app for the mechanical engineer or the engineering student.

Mechanical Engineer is laden with formulas and features sure to inform and inspire engineers. Since it is a universal app, one download contains versions optimized for the screen size of every iPhone and iPad model, as well as the iPod Touch.

MultiEducator Mechanical Engineer Features

  • 300 important mechanical engineering formulas
  • 300 conversion formulas
  • 70 area formulas
  • Universal app compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch
  • Saving of customized formulas
  • Email formula results
  • Available for $5.99 at the App Store

MultiEducator provides excellent support for the app, which is part of their Formulator line of mobile engineering software. The company actually takes suggestions on the inclusion of new formulas to be included in future versions.

Mechanical Engineer Formulas and Functionality

Mechanical Engineer arranges its nearly 700 formulas in a wide array of categories that spans the overall mechanical engineering world. A sampling of these categories includes some specific to transportation: Brakes, Vehicle Drives, and Clutches, while others cover topics like Fluid Power, Internal Combustion, Refrigeration, and Metalworking. These categories make it easy to find a particular formula, and the app also keeps track of those that are frequently accessed.

The app’s interface is functional, especially on the larger screen real estate of the iPad, with a useful pop-up calculator to enter formula values. The faux leather and paper graphic backgrounds add to the overall feel. The inclusion of area formulas and metric conversions provide convenience.

An app like Mechanical Engineer is great for engineering students and those already in a productive career. Students looking for their first mechanical engineering job, as well as experienced engineers on a quest for a new challenge, need to talk with the engineering recruiters at The Talley Group. As one of the leading engineering staffing companies in the United States, they can help you find a perfect mechanical engineering position so you can try out MultiEducator’s app while actually on the job.
