Excel
The Bond specific energy model may be invoked from the Excel formula bar with the following function call:
=mdMillPower_BondWI(Parameters as Range)
Invoking the function with no arguments will print Help text associated with the model, including a link to this page.
The Parameters array and model results are defined below in matrix notation, along with an example image showing the selection of the same arrays in the Excel interface:
