XL 4 Simulation
XL4Sim is a collection of custom Excel® Add-ins of custom functions, worksheet
macros, and COM Add-ins. These simple to use but comprehensive
spreadsheet Add-ins cover a broad range of engineering disciplines including
area properties, statics, dynamics, vibration, shock, buckling, thermal, flow and
heat transfer.  

These Add-ins include specific capabilities for analyzing beams and 2D frames
statically and dynamically, linear and nonlinear buckling, finned heat sinks, area
properties of complex shapes and many others.


  • The Add-ins are compatible with Excel® versions from 9  to 14 in Office
    versions 2000 to 2013 with Office 2010 and 2013 in both 32 and 64 bit.

  • The full capabilities of Excel® are maintained and enhanced by these

  • All MS Excel® macros and Add-ins have 3rd party code signing
    certification for trusted source authentication.

  • A fast and accurate method for engineering simulations.

  • Simulations can be setup and run within minutes.

  • The full functionality of the spreadsheet software remains and can be
    used to further broaden the module capabilities including charting, cell
    calculations, built-in functions and so on.

  • Each set of results can be saved in the  worksheet with unlimited
    scenarios and used for future use or documentation.

  • Additional worksheets can be easily copied into the same Workbook or a
    new Workbook for other simulations.

  • The various spreadsheet modules can be combined and/or
    interconnected for  enhanced capabilities.

  • The modules can be used for preliminary assessment before more time
    is spent on the more general simulation tools like finite element,
    computational fluid dynamics and other software.

  • They can be used to check the results of the more general simulations.

  • Develop information needed for the more general simulation tools.

  • Each module and  user function has free accessible and downloadable
    documentation for the use, theory and validation.
