How to get, install, and use the mh1823 POD Software,
... for Windows users
read all the instructions before continuing.)
First, get things ready:
Create a folder called R-Projects in your
My Documents folder.
In that folder create a subfolder named mh1823 POD
Next, send me an e-mail
request for the
mh1823 POD package and example datasets. (I try to
respond as soon as the request arrives.)
MIL-HDBK-1823 POD files.zip file to your
folder and unzip it. This will produce the 1823 POD
icon, 6 example EXCEL files, and another zip file.
Do not unzip that file
The rest is easy:
Since the mh1823 POD algorithms use R
for all data manipulation, statistical analysis, and graphics ...
Download and install R. Click
Then install the mh1823 POD software which is an R
package and is included in the
MIL-HDBK-1823 POD files.zipfile. Click
Note on firewalls:
- Downloading software on the company computer may run afoul of
enterprise policy. One remedy is to install R and
the mh1823 POD package on a 1 gig memory stick.
(It takes about 1/4 gig total.) Then you can analyze NDE data, and
produce POD vs. size curves, on any computer - plug in the stick and
you're good to go. All the analysis, results and plots will be on
