Mechanical Design Library


Starting with version 11.586, an option is provided in the Auto Load Libaries tab of the Preferences dialog to automatically load the Mechanical Design library when EES is started.  By default, this library is automatically loaded.  Loading the library requires little computer time, but compilation time for large EES programs is slightly slower when the library is loaded.  If you choose to not automaically load the Mechanical Design library at startup, you can manually load it by placing a $Load Mechanical Design directive in the Equations window.  If the library is already loaded, this directive is ignored.


The mechanical design library is a set of external library routines, written in EES, that provide functions for:


Moment of inertia 


Stress concentration.  


Endurance factors


Gear Design
