I just found that yesterday with a Google search. I never ceased to be amazed at how easy engineering calculations can be now. When I started as a draftsman for Caterpillar Research Division in Oct 1972, they had a room filled with engineers, that all they did was calculate all day long. Finite element analysis, beam loads, etc. Hard to visualize row after row of guys using slide rules today! Guys that lived on cigarettes and coffee. Guys that had to empty their ash trays at noon. Certainly a different time.
