      Am not really sure. Some of my designs don’t require that much calculation but need more thought put into them in other ways. Where as others have lots of design checks and yet aren’t that complex, just lots of little calculations.

      Thankfully I use excel to do a lot of the repetitive calculations. Engineering must have taken much longer before we had spreadsheets.
