- Disclaimer ----------------------------------------------------------
This webpage provides structural design software which created using Microsoft® Windows® Excel® Professional 2003. The purchased professional version are XLS software by Microsoft® Excel®. The Spreadsheets will be shipped in .EXE format. Please check this web version software before purchasing. We can not refund your payment if we sent you the spreadsheet software. Please, see our "Return Policy".

We intend that the analysis is accurate and reliable, but it is entirely the responsibility of the user to verify the accuracy and applicability. Whilst, the spreadsheets have been checked with all reasonable care and diligence, they cannot be guaranteed for every eventuality. Validation was held to be extremely important but these spreadsheets can never be fully validated. Customer (Users) must satisfy themselves that the uses to which the spreadsheets are put are appropriate. Customer (Users) must have read, understood and accepted the disclaimer contained on the “User’s Guide” publication and repeated in the sheet named “Splash” in each spreadsheet (see “End User Agreement”).

- Requirements and system recommendations -------------------------------

You must have Microsoft® Office® Excel® 2003/2007/2010/2013/2016 installed on your computer. No additional data disks are required. The Microsoft Excel® User’s Guide, particularly, covers every feature of our spreadsheets.
Obviously, you must have an internet connection.

Your installation must include the following applications, which come with Microsoft Office:

— Excel.

The Excel spreadsheets do automatically the calculations providing macros have not been switched off.
The spreadsheets will be shipped to our customers in .exe format.

NOTE: Office 2007/2010/2013/2016 - ActiveX Settings - enabling all controls without restrictions and without prompting. By default, Microsoft Office installs the 32-bit version of MS Office even if your computer is running 64-bit editions of Windows. The 32-bit version of Office is the recommended option for most people, because it prevents potential compatibility issues with other 32-bit applications, specifically third-party add-ins that are available only for 32-bit operating systems.

EUROCODES Spreadsheets are compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft® Office®.

- Registration/activation code -------------------------------------------

The registration/activation code is based on the “Name”, “Organisation”, “City” and “Postcode” you supply via internet in the field of the register application. The activation code is needed for the customer registration and is required to download your customized copy of the software and any future updates from this web address: http://eurocodespreadsheets.jimdo.com/updates/
where you will find further instructions. Once your license is active, when you start the individual spreadsheets for the first time, you are prompted to read the Software License Agreement for EUROCODES Spreadsheets Structural Design. Entering the Activation Code (keyword) and clicking “OK” (or simply using the file) you agree that this is the entire agreement between you and Carlo Sigmund, which supersedes any prior agreement, whether written or oral, and all other communications between Carlo Sigmund and you relating to the subject matter of this Agreement.


- Verification Tests -----------------------------------------------------

The spreadsheets have been developed with the goal of carry out fast calculations according to the Eurocodes (EN). The spreadsheets have been produced to cater for both first-time users and the very experienced. The spreadsheets will be issued with publications (provided electronically in the PDF format) covering their use, complete with model designs and verification tests. The data given in the “problem sketch” of each test is intended to illustrate the problem in general terms rather than to give all the data necessary to actually perform the test.
The verification tests-results given in the publications were obtained using Microsoft® Office® Excel® 2003 (11.5612.5606), which comes with Microsoft® Office® Professional Edition 2003.
Each PDF enclosed document is made available only to allow proper validation of the mathematical calculations carried out on spreadsheets. Therefore, each PDF document is not intended to replace or interpret the parts of the standard to which it refers nor does it constitute a stand-alone document.

• an invoice/receipt (in electronic format)
• a registration/activation code to download, lock/unlock the spreadsheets and check updates
