Spreadsheet Applications in Materials Science

  • A. A. Gorni


Until about 20 years ago, computer applications in Materials Science were frequently discouraged by the high cost of computer processing and by the huge efforts necessary to develop and debug a program in the harsh mainframe environment. Only in very specific cases — crystallographic texture analysis, for example (Bunge 1982) — was the use of computers justified. However, it is interesting to note that a book on Materials Science edited more than twenty years ago (Guy 1976) already included some simple Fortran programs related to applications in this field.
