To illustrate how to define E, r, n and S for AeroFinSim, a new Microsoft Excel spreadsheet based on the Rule of Mixtures (49KB) is provided as a free download. The user simply inserts results from the spreadsheet into the User Defined Material section of the Fin Materials pull-down menu on the AeroFinSim main screen. The example illustrated in the spreadsheet is for the construction of Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic (GFRP) fins that use epoxy for the matrix material and fiberglass for the fiber material. This spreadsheet analysis uses GFRP an example so it is recommended the user consult other sources for more exotic constituent material properties. Use the procedure above to download.

NOTE-1: All AeroRocket programs are compatible with Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 10 (64 bit) desktop computers having screen resolutions of at least 1024 X 768 pixels with 256 colors. AeroRocket programs are developed using Visual Basic 6 and are therefore not compatible with devices like the 4G LTE smartphone.

NOTE-2
: Software Installation: Download the .zip file and copy to the desktop. Then, double-click the .zip file to run WinZip which extracts and installs the computer program. If this procedure does not work then copy the .zip file to the desktop then right-click the .zip file and click Open with WinZip or Extract to... to run the installation program. Follow the setup instructions and use provided defaults for proper installation. For Windows 10, double click the .zip file then click extract to copy the contents to a separate folder and finally double click setup.exe to install.

NOTE-3: Input data for all AeroRocket programs must use a period (.) and not a comma (,) and the computer must be set to the English (United States) language. For example, gas constant should be written as  Rgas = 355.4 (J / kg*K = m^2 / sec^2*K) and not Rgas = 355,4. The English (United States) language is set in the Control Panel by clicking Date, Time, Language and Regional Options then Regional and Language Options and finally by selecting English (United States). If periods are not used in all inputs and outputs the results will not be correct.
