We're Australia and New Zealand's largest Mathcad distributor.

Calculations are the heart of engineering information yet too many companies fail to properly solve, document, and share their engineering calculations. They lose invaluable intellectual property with every new project, resignation or retirement. Mathcad is the first and only engineering calculation solution that simultaneously performs and documents engineering calculations while dramatically reducing the risk of costly errors.

Mathcad 15 Features

Mathcad 15 Screenshot

Highlights of the enhancements in Mathcad 15.0 include:

  • Design of Experiments (DoE) – Over 25 new functions to reduce the time and expense of conducting experiments thru DoE by understanding the variable interactions that will influence the experiment. DoE helps identify critical factors and optimal settings for complex processes. It provides templates for a fewer number of experiments which are indispensable when having multiple variables and levels.
     

  • Integration to Knovel Math content – Quickly access the full list of Knovel’s fully documented Mathcad worksheets from Roark’s and Hick’s reference works reducing the time it takes to solve complex math problems.
     

  • Integration with Kornucopia software – Kornucopia by Bodie Technology, is designed to reduce time and effort spent on analysis by providing functions and templates using Mathcad-based documented workflows, that improves interpretations and value of experimental data and simulation results
     

  • Integration to Truenumbers – Truenumbers by True Engineering Technology enables the ability to easily communicate values across applications and the organization without loss of quantity or unit integrity. Results and values can be moved outside of Mathcad onto different document types – enabling easy sharing of the data
     

  • Support for Microsoft Excel 2007 – Leverage the following functions and features with Excel: READEXCEL(), WRITEEXCEL(), READFILE, the data import wizard, and the Excel Add-in
     

  • Windows 7 support


Computational Capabilities

Mathcad 15 Screenshot
  • High-end numerics - Perform summations, products, derivatives, integrals, and Boolean operations; apply trigonometric, exponential, hyperbolic, and other functions and transforms.
     

  • Live symbolics - Simplify, differentiate, integrate and transform expressions algebraically; Mathcad’s patented live symbolics technology automatically recalculates algebraic solutions and allows you to use them in subsequent calculations.
     

  • Vector and matrix handling - Manipulate arrays and performs various linear algebra operations, such as finding eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
     

  • Statistical and data analysis - Generate random numbers or histograms, fit data to built-in and general functions, interpolate data, and build probability distribution models.
     

  • Differential equation solving - Solve linear and non-linear systems of equations and boundary value problems; use solve blocks and natural notation to specify sets of constraints.
     

  • Design of Experiments functions - Over 25 new DoE functions can be used for constructing experimental design matrices, developing statistical models, and performing Monte Carlo simulations.
     

  • Units support - Include units in calculations, perform unit conversions,and automatically check dimensions. Add domain-specific units.Convert results to any unit system or custom values. Currency units effectively document engineering cost and economic evaluations.
