What clients say:

I find XLRotor a unique and powerful rotordynamics software where its ease of use, productivity, Excel interface and automation with its new feature of Singular Value Decomposition analysis make it the BEST of all its kind. Moreover complicated and time consuming analyses can easily and efficiently be carried out in XLRotor within a very short time. The prompt technical support is outstanding. XLRotor is simply a MUST software for every engineer willing to master the rotordynamics field.

Training

The need for training normally falls into two categories; using XLRotor and general rotordynamic analysis.

For many, the Excel interface makes XLRotor intuitive enough to use with little to no training on the
XLRotor software itself. Any of the many included example files can be used to get yourself started immediately with your analysis. Contextual and searchable HELP gives immediately useful information from any screen.

XLRotor comes with a comprehensive multi-part tutorial in pdf files that are launched from the Windows Start button (Start/All Programs/XLRotor/XLRotor Tutorial) or from the XLRotor ribbon tab in Excel (look in the Help group on the far right of the ribbon). The first part of the tutorial quickly covers the basics that will make most users productive in just a few minutes.

For custom training on XLRotor, contact us. A typical course is 3 days at the customer site for 3-10 engineers. The content is oriented to XLRotor users and includes a combination of rotordynamics concepts and advanced XLRotor use. Additional XLRotor licenses are provided for every student for self-study in advance and to use during the course.

Training in general rotordynamic analysis is a complex topic, and can be obtained from books, university classes or short courses. For some recommended books, visit www.rotordynamics.org and click on Booklist. For university classes or short courses, use an internet search engine.
