Abstract:

This is a general overview of POD Version 3 usage with emphasis on the input sheets for a POD analysis. The manual also contains the explanations of the output tables and graphs. The input and output sheets are standard Excel workbook sheets. All standard Excel 97 commands can be used at the discretion of the user. Knowledge of Excel is assumed and no Excel commands are discussed. It is a C program that interacts with a Microsoft Excel 97 workbook to perform POD analysis on the results of an NDE capability demonstration. The interface between the user and POD is the Excel Workbook. POD controls the analysis through a window that opens and closes workbooks, calls for the recalculations using the analysis and data specified on the input sheets of the workbook, and executes Excel macros that produce the output of the analysis. POD names, uses, and controls a maximum of 11 sheets of the workbook. Two of these sheets contain the input information for an analysis and the other nine contain analysis output in the form of tables and graphs.
