The first edition of Roark’s Formulas, designed for TK Solver, was released by UTS in 1989, and was quickly received by consumers as a “design engineer’s dream,” as described by Professor Warren Young, the co-author of Roark’s Formulas for Stress and Strain. Now, UTS has made it available to Excel users, providing an exceedingly efficient and accessible resource for the practical engineer.

Roark’s Formulas for Excel requires Windows 2000 or XP and MS Excel 2000 or later.

“UTS looks like they have another winner on their hands. First they merged one of the most popular engineering references with TKSolver's backsolving capability to create Interactive Roark's Formulas for TKSolver. It is an application that simplifies an engineer' s life immensely. I can't count the hours it has saved me from re-creating spreadsheets from a textbook. Now, UTS has done it again. They've taken the same powerful application and wrapped it in arguably the most widely used engineer's tool....amazing. UTS continues to be the best kept secret in the engineering software world."
Wayne Pilgrim - Weatherford Incorporated

"As a TK Solver / Roark user of nearly two decades, I am very impressed to see that Roark's formulas is now presented as a robust "plug and play" module within Excel.

Just select the model(s) you want, select the parameters of interest, solve and then click to produce a well presented report that clearly and accurately presents the data in a coherent and understandable form for your peers.

If a picture paints a thousand words, then Roark's Formulas for Excel solves a million Engineering problems.

I look forward to using it alongside my regular finite element stress analysis software and actual mechanical testing as a confidence booster to give accurate engineering judgement and results."
Mike Hagland, Senior Materials Analyst - Gyrus Medical Limited

"I have found ‘Roark’s Formulas for Excel’ to be a very useful tool. The ability to access Roark’s book in a familiar environment such as MS Excel is ideal for calculations and report writing. Furthermore, the learning curve is almost non-existent."
