Title: BEAM IN A SOCKET METHOD

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

About us:
We help people develop new aircraft structure and systems and make modifications to existing structure
and systems. We do all types of aircraft - Part 23, Part 25, Civil, Military, Prototype, Experimental - and
have extensive experience with composite laminate material selection, process control, manufacture,
design, substantiation and certification.
We love to do things right first time and get the job done as quickly and completely as possible

About Our Spreadsheets:


Our in-house structural analysis toolbox is our collection of spreadsheets. The sheets that we make
available on our website are a small proportion of the sheets that we have developed for our own use.
They are intended to be used by engineers. They are not protected software packages and can be
changed in every way by the user.
All of our spreadsheets are provided 'as is' with no warranty or guarantee explicitly given or implied. We
have made every reasonable effort to remove all errors but some may still exist and all analysis work
should be thoroughly checked. If you do find errors plese notify us at:
spreadsheets@abbottaerospace.com

Proprietary information:
The spreadsheets contain no proprietary information from outside of Abbott Aerospace Inc. If you think
that we have used proprietary information inappropriately please let us know.
Abbott Aerospace Inc. grants the user the right to use, modify, reproduce and redistribute these
spreadsheets. We just ask that if possible you maintain a credit naming Abbott Aerospace Inc. as the
source.
Our analysis spreadsheets in general do not use Visual Basic routines. The MS Excel add-ins on the site
are written in visual basic and are password protected. They are password protected because the visual
basic code is proprietary, private, confidential and copyrighted to Abbott Aerospace Inc. The MS Excel
add-in AA-SM-99-001 which is made freely available may be copied and redistributed without charge.
If you have any questions regarding legal issues please contact us at:
enquiries@abbottaerospace.com

Things you have to know before using our Spreadsheets:


Our spreadsheets are provided without any restrictions on use - but the display of information on the
screen does rely on a free Excel Add-In we created that displays equations easily. The mathematics of th
spreadsheets wil work fine without the free Add-in but the spreadsheets may display many errors.
The Add-In is available for download at the top of this page:
http://www.abbottaerospace.com/Welcome/Spreadsheets
Click on the link to download AA-SM-99-001
Put the .xlam file in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\Library directory. Start Excel and
install the Add-in by following these instructions:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-ca/excel-help/add-or-remove-add-ins-HP010342658.aspx
