We have condensed our reason for being in a short and snappy video which we are currently displaying on our homepage. The closing comments set out a vision of more users, more calculations and more productivity benefits for the whole community. Please take a look and forward this email to friends and colleagues to encourage them to get involved too.

We are particularly grateful to Rahul Menon who has uploaded three new calculations. Rahul has previously uploaded other great calculations. Rahul tells us a little about himself:

"I was born on 1977-06-09, I have a B.S in Mechanical Engineering, Masters in Manufacturing system engineering, Masters in Management Science and Engineering and working towards my Doctorate in Thermofluids and control systems. I am a full time employee for an aerospace company here in Washington working as a senior stress engineer and I have been doing structural analysis for more than 10 years. I have developed lot of tools for Aerospace structural analysis using PERL, Python scripting and of course the best of all Microsoft excel. I am here at ExcelCalcs to share and learn more about excel and tools developed in excel and I feel all the spreadsheets are great and could be very helpful in doing stress analysis. My main interests are to create spreadsheets to perform strain energy minimization of common structural members such as beams, plates, shells, vessels, frames etc."

Rabindraadhi also makes his début calculation. Thank you. Why not make your own début calculation we are always delighted to receive them
