    RC Beam

    RC Beam iPhone App RC Beam is an iPhone engineering app that aids in the design of reinforced concrete beams. It uses metric and US units, and it incorporates ACI 318-08 & ACI 318M-08 building codes. The calculations performed by the app are based on engineering principles such as moment, shear, and torsion. One of the features of the app is Flexure Design. The app calculates the tension required to reinforce T-shaped or rectangular concrete beams. Another feature is Section Properties, which analyzes several properties of tension reinforced rectangular beams. Some of the properties which can be calculated include cracked moment of inertia, yielding moment, nominal moment strength, and the type of failure. For more information about this app, visit the official site of RC Beam.

    RC Design

    RC Design iPhone App RC Design is an engineering app for iPhone that aids in the design of reinforced concrete members. The app includes rectangular and circular column analysis covering two way shear design and corbel design. The app calculates the amount of slab shear reinforcement required to resist two way shear, and it constructs a diagram of excess shear stress. The app also calculates the corbel depth required to resist a horizontal and vertical force. This app is ideal for structural or civil engineers, since it is based on the requirements for structural concrete as described in building codes ACI 318-08 and ACI 318M-08. For more information about this app, visit the official site of RC Design.

    Engineering Professional

    Engineering Professional iPhone App Most iPhone engineering apps focus on a particular branch of engineering, but Engineering Professional covers nearly everything. This is one of the engineering apps for iPhone that is designed for civil, mechanical, electrical, environmental, and chemical engineers. The app features over 650 engineering formulas, 100 conversion formulas, and dozens of area formulas. Some of the topics covered include energy loss, vaporization, bridges, pipes, btu, batteries, voltage, air quality, pollution, water flow, gears, kinetic energy, and springs. The answers to many of the calculations can be saved or emailed. For more information about this app, visit the official site of Engineering Professional.

    e-ENGineer

    e-ENGineer iPhone App e-ENGineer is one of the iPhone engineering apps that focus on electrical engineering. It provides engineers and students a quick reference that features common calculations encountered in electrical engineering problems. Some of the formulas include volt drop, star-delta transformation, delta-star transformation, Ohm's law, and capacitance. For more information about this app, visit the official site of e-ENGineer.

    Orifice

    Orifice iPhone App Orifice is another engineering app for iPhone. It is a square edge orifice sizing application used for pipes. It calculates the orifice size, flow rate of the liquid, and the delta P across the orifice. Simply input the required measurements for each calculation. For more information about this app, visit the official site of Orifice.
