Top 10 Engineering Apps on the iPhone
It’s time for some quirky engineering on your iPhone as we round up some of the best engineering applications available for the device.
No 10. Engineer’s calculator
Fittingly, we start off with the most basic requirement of an engineer with this handy calculator. This engineering calculator practically has no size limits and displays numbers in engineering notations. This calculator also features some good number of mathematical functions.
No 9. Pipe sizer
Input the flow rate and velocity of the flow and this calculator will give you the exact internal pipe diameter required. Works in both metric and imperial unit systems.
No 8. e-ENGineer
One for the electrical engineers, this app allows for almost all the calculations required by them.
No 7. Pressure drop calculator
Quite a handy app for professionals and students alike. You have to enter the fluid flow rate, internal pipe diameter, fluid density, fluid viscosity, pipe roughness factor along with the equivalent length in either pump runs or a combination of piping, plus valves and fittings and this app will give you Reynolds number, Fanning friction factor, pressure drop and fluid velocity in the pipe. Phew!
No 6. Pump calculator
This little program allows you to calculate the horsepower required to pump a liquid with a centrifugal pump and the associated annual cost of running.
No 5. element14 Everywhere
This app allows you to connect and discuss with engineers around the globe regarding latest technologies. This app gives you access to a community of electronics design engineers to help you or let you help them.
No 4. Orifice
This app is essentially a collection of 3 calculators that allow you to calculate volumetric flow, the orifice size and the delta P across the orifice for a rectangular edged orifice.
No 3. Fastfigures
This mega app consists of almost 60 calculators. Calculators included are for finance, real estate and engineering of course. To top that off, you can also add pre-created calculator templates.
No 2. iLogica
It contains the main true tables and a simulator. A very useful app if you encounter complex logic tables in your study or work.
No 1. Engineering Professional
With over 650 formulas covering fields like civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering and hydrology engineering this app is a must have for any engineering student and professional. The software is expected to grow to over 1,000 formulas shortly.
