Features
Tube Flattening
Calculator
A new Tube Flattening section
has been added to the Advanced Tubular Technologies Calculator. It is
designed to aid tube and pipe fabricators in determining how to set up
tooling to create a flattened area on a tube.


Right Triangle
Angle Calculator
The
Right Triangle Angle Calculatorallows
you to enter the two base lengths of a right triangle to calculate the
angle nearest base A and the hypotenuse length. (The hypotenuse of a
right
triangle is the leg that spans at an angle from point 1 of base A to
point 2
of base B.)


FootInch Sum
Calculator
The
FootInch Sum Calculator allows you to
add multiple
distances in the FootInchFraction format without
the hassle of making the different distance units common.
(Click on the image of the FootInch Sum page to see a closeup of the
image.)
Using
the Calculator
To use this calculator, enter the WHOLE FOOT, WHOLE INCH, and
FRACTIONAL INCH
values, then press the PLUS (+) button to add the positive value of
your distance in
the list. The NEGATIVE () button is used to add the negative value of
your entry
in the list.
As you add values to the page, the calculator automatically sums all
the values in the
list and gives the answer in the lower box. The answer is given using
the lowest
denominator value possible (for example, 1' 62/16" is always changed
to 1' 61/8" ).
Controlling
the Sum List
The three buttons, Delete Row, Clear List, and Edit Value
are used to control
the list of values.
 Use
Delete Row to delete a value from the list.
 Use
Clear List to clear all values in the list to start over.
 Use
Edit Value to place a list value in the edit boxes for editing and
reuse.
The program can also adjust the list by using a pop up menu that is
displayed by right clicking on the sum list.
Controlling
the Answer
The fractional accuracy of the answer can be controlled by adjusting
the Greatest Denominator radio buttons. For
example, if the greatest denominator is
set to "16", then the answer will never include fractional values of 32
or 64. The
answer adjusts automatically as soon as you choose a new radio button.


Tangent
Distance Calculator
The tangent distance is the distance from the
tangent point of a bend to its intersection point. Click on the image
of the Tangent Distance page to see a closeup of the image. The image
will visually demonstrate the tangent distance.
The calculator uses the Radius and Bend Angle values to calculate the
tangent distance value immediately.


Arc Length
Calculator
The
arc length is the length of an arc of
a bend. Click on the image of the Arc Length page
to see a closeup of the image.
The
calculator uses the Radius and Bend Angle values to calculate the arc
length
value immediately.


Conversion
Calculator
The
Conversion Calculator converts values
from one unit to another using a pre programmed multiplier value.
To convert from millimeters to inches, select the Millimeters
to Inches conversion from the pulldown list and then enter a
value in the "From Millimeters" box. The conversion value is displayed
immediately in the "To Inches" box.
Click on the image of the Conversion Page to see a closeup of the
screen image.
This version of the program is preloaded with 102 conversions.
In
this version of the calculator, conversion data can now be loaded from
data files organized by type like distance, volume,
weight, pressure, etc. You can even save a group of your
favorite conversions to your own file. If you don't find the conversion
that you need, then you can add it to the list and store it in
whichever conversion data file is most appropriate.


Right Triangle
Base Calculator 1
The
first Right Triangle Base Calculator calculates the
values of the two bases of the triangle given the hypotenuse
length and the hypotenuse angle.
Click on the image of the Right Triangle Base 1 page to see a closeup
of the screen image.


Right
Triangle Base Calculator 2
The
second Right Triangle Base Calculator calculates
the values of the hypotenuse and one of the bases of the triangle given
the other base value and the adjacent
angle.
Click on the image of the Right Triangle Base 2 page to see a closeup
of the screen image.


Windows
Calculator
The
Calculator page has the same
functionality as the normal Windows calculator
Have you ever needed a calculator "right now", but left yours in the
brief case, in the car?
Click on this page and use the Advanced Tubular Technologies calculator
or load the standard Windows calculator.
Click on the image of the Windows Calculator page to see a closeup of
the screen image.


Standard
Windows Commands
Every calculated value in the ATTCalc program can
be copied to the Windows clipboard so
that it can be used in other Windows programs.
Also, using the clipboard, you can solve for a
value in Millimeters and then copy the result value to the Conversion
page for conversion to Inches, or Feet, or whatever.
 To
COPY a value, select that value using
the mouse or the shift key and then press CtrlC.
 To
PASTE a value to a box, select the edit
box where the value is to be placed and then press CtrlV.
 To
CUT a value in an edit box, select the
value and press CtrlX.
 DOUBLECLICK
on a value to select a word in an edit box automatically
