Turan Babacan has sent a new version of EXCsta2D. It has an improved user interface and results presentation. Just marvel how Turan uses Excel in such an innovative way. Turan teaches even Excel veterans new spreadsheet techniques and Excel tricks. This is truly great 2D beam analysis method and an essential download for all engineers.

Turan tells us a little about himself. "I was born in Trabzon in 1964. I am a civil engineer. I do amateur software since 1986. C + +, VB, VBA, Prolog and Fortran languages I know. From the project since 1990 I am working in the manufacturing sector. "Steel buildings, Substructure and road engineering," I'm experienced Excel is 'my hand up my arm'. I am currently working in Istanbul."
