A range of engineering applications from MultiEducator’s iPhone are available for the iPhone. One called Civil Engineer contains 95 important formulas and will grow to over 200 in the next few months as developer, MultiEducator’s iPhone, adds 20 or more formulas each month in upgrades (free of charge to current users). The price of the program will increase for new buyers, once the program reaches the 200 formula mark. In addition there are nearly 100 conversion formulas in the program as well as 50 area formulas. Major areas covered in the program now include: Beams, Bridges, Columns, Elevator, Piles, Plates, Roads, Soil and Structural SteelAll formulas can be saved.
Mechanical Engineer, another set of apps, contains 100 important formulas needed by MEs. The software will grow to over 200 formulas in the next few months. Major areas covered in the program include: Bearings, Belts, Brakes, Clutches, Elevators, Gears, Kinetic Energy, Metalworking, Shafts, and Springs. Users can e-mail results of the formulas. If you do not see a formula needed or liked, just e-mail the developer and they say they will try to include the request in the next update.
Lastly, Electrical Formulator Pro combines the formulas of the regular program while adding the first 40 charts on what will eventually include over 100 charts. These include those on motors, power demand, wiring, and voltage drop and safety codes. The basic program calculates Amps both from ac and dc currents.

Check out Engineering Calculator. A calculator specifically for engineers, with extended capabilities and reference tables for concrete, steel and reinforcement. Great for everyday work.
Michael Barone says
I an Engineering Manager for a major corporation in the aerospace industry. I have a vision of all our Engineering standards (including applications) being available in IOS and our Engineers using iPads and iPhones (i.e., moving away from custom desktop solutions). Applications such as Plate and Beam design, Bolt Torque-preload relationships, Spring Design Calculators, Fatigue (minors summation) calculators, Material Properties DB, Seal Design App (e.g. oring sizing, gland sizing), Seal Leakage Apps, Valve-type selection App, Valve Design App, Fluid flow apps, Pump-select apps, etc).
Any thoughts on whether you have or will have such apps. Would you consider writing apps for our company? We already have many standard apps (we call them calculators) that would just need to be re-written for IOS but with a kick-ass GUI!
