AnaSyn Consulting has developed two easy-to-use Microsoft Excel® spreadsheets for the materials handling industry. See web site:

1. Material Balance Excel Spreadsheet for a Two Deck Screening Circuit*

This spreadsheet program is a powerful tool for rapidly optimizing the performance of a two deck screening circuit for the production of granular material.**********

2. Excel Spreadsheet for Probability Plotting and Estimation of the Mean and Standard Deviation of a Normal Distribution

For a given distribution, assuming the distribution approximates normal, this spreadsheet plots the data on probability and log-probability axes. It also calculates the mean, standard deviation and coefficient of variation, thus providing the engineer with a means of quantifying and distinguishing between distributions and the processes that create them.
