Mechanical Engineering Tools

MEboost has tools to make mundane calculations simple and quick.  No more wasting time figuring out how to make charts.  Imagine a tool where you can alter your design variables and get results in seconds.  MEboost allows you to do this and more!

Presenting results are important and all reports and charts are 100% native Excel.  You can change formatting to your desired style.  Create reports and presentations quickly and efficiently!

Shaft Design

MEboost includes a comprehensive shaft design tool.  Easily generate numerous design charts and calculations.  You can refine designs in seconds.  Spend more time designing and less time calculating.

  • Static stress
  • Deflection and slope
  • Stress-life fatigue analysis
  • Critical speed calculation

Mohr's Circle

Generation of Mohr's circle chart for plane stress.  Calculates principal stresses, maximum shear, and principal plane angle.

Generation of Mohr's circle chart for plane strain.  Calculates principal strains, maximum shear strain/2, and principal plane angle.

Beam Diagrams

Easily create shear, moment, and deflection diagrams for statically determinate beams.

Fatigue Diagrams

Charts for Goodman, Soderberg, Gerber, ASME elliptic, and yield lines.  You can also plot the operating point on the chart.

Stress Life Fatigue Analysis

Create load plots in seconds.

The preprocessing tool filters loading data to remove non-peak and non-valley data.

The fatigue damage tool performs stress life analysis:

  • Load cycle counts using the rainflow counting algorithm.
  • Cumulative fatigue damage using Miner's rule.

Sheet Metal Flat Blank Calculator

Generate flat blank dimensions in up to two directions.  Create a report in a worksheet listing bend line locations.

Tolerance Analysis

Root Sum Squared Use RSS tolerance analysis to determine rejection rate.

Worst Case  Use worst case analysis to determine minimum and maximum stack dimension or clearance.

Monte Carlo Simulation  Each part's dimension is a random variable that allows for calculation of assembly dimension (or clearance) probabilities.

Tolerance Calculator Determine dimension tolerance limits based on range of standard deviations.

Vibration Analysis

Generate transmissibility chart for forced vibration.  Report shows natural frequency of system and damping ratio.  This is especially useful for rotating equipment.


Three hydraulics calculators:

  • Pump and motor calculator
  • Cylinder calculator
  • Fluid velocity calculator

Affinity Laws

The affinity laws tool has two parts:

Calculator  Enter values from a known operating point to determine head, flow rate, or power for a different operating point.

Charts  Generate charts that plot head, flow rate, and power versus varying shaft speed and impeller diameter.

System Curve

Given a known operating point, a system curve can be plotted along with up to four pump curves.  A combined pump curve in series or parallel can be automatically created as well.

Bernoulli Equation

The Bernoulli equation tool allows for calculation of an unknown value given information at another point in a streamline.  A report of the results can be generated.

Pressure - Head Conversion Tool

Convert pressure to head and vice versa.  Mixed units are no problem.

Unit Conversion Tool

Convert most commonly used units without leaving Excel.


Estimate definite integrals up to four dimensions (quadruple integrals) using Monte Carlo simulation.
