TK Solver allows you to enter formulas in any order and TK's declarative character also eliminates the need to isolate variables that you want to solve for. This approach is designed to save time, as well as take mathematical modelling beyond the province of mathematicians to engineers and scientists as well as programmers.
Simple and Fast
Engineers, scientists, and financial analysts need to approach problems from many different angles and TK Solver enables them do this up to 90% faster than traditional methods. What makes this possible is the unique rule-based, declarative method of setting up problems. Other programming and analysis environments use a procedural approach that requires a precise sequence of instructions and formulas where the known and unknown variables are sorted out ahead of time.
With TK Solver, you don’t need to decide what variables will be inputs and which ones will be outputs when creating a mathematical model. Think of what that means for designing springs and gears or for studying how variables such as loads, pressure, heat, or even loan calculations behave as other inputs change. Setting up problems is fast and easy with TK Solver.
TK Solver is still the only solution that gives you the ability to use guess values to "backsolve" making it the ideal tool for testing "what if" scenarios. Imagine being able to solve for anything, in any direction, and reverse engineer a solution without having to rewrite the equations. TK Solver can handle thousands of simultaneous linear and non-linear equations so you no longer have to build matrices or make trial and error calculations. Just give TK Solver your best guess and it will use the built-in iterative solver to find the answer.
TK Solver includes more than 200 built-in functions that do everything from trigonometry and integration, to differentiation, matrix operations, and simulations. Also included, is a collection of thermodynamic and transport property functions based on the NIST Standard Reference Database 23 with more than thirty functions involving temperature, pressure, density, entropy, enthalpy, and more. There are over one hundred fluids and mixtures plus a utility to create new mixtures that supports English, Metric, Mass, and Molar unit combinations.
TK Solver makes model sharing easier with a wide range of units for engineering and science that makes unit conversion automatic. No more paging through handbooks to find the right formula and unlike a scratch pad or symbolic math program, there’s no complicated interface or dependence on math notation. With TK Solver, the information you need is simply a mouse click away. TK Applications are available, including: Roark & Young on TK, Heat Transfer on TK, Dynamics and Vibration Analysis, StackSoft, Vehicle Dynamics, Queuing, and First Gear.
TK Solver Packs include: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Calculations, Introductory to Science, Financial Management, Units Conversion, and Building Design & Construction.
