I don´t know if you are a student or a professional, practicing engineer. If you are the former, I can understand the fear and concern that envelopes some students when they are forced to produce a work product of their own, based on their own initiative and hard work. After all, a student is not paid for his/her work efforts. On the contrary, most of them are paying for the privilege of doing the hard work.

However, if you are the latter, this really opens up a can of worms. Are you implying that there is a secretive or arcane "spreadsheet" that automatically solves or contains the answers to calculating and tabulating a complete heat and mass balance for a power plant? If so, where did you get such an idea? I´ve done what you have been encharged with (and probably so have a lot of the other, veteran practicing engineers on our Forums) and I don´t understand why you are reluctant to initiate and produce the work product asked of you. Are you stating that you prefer to have someone else do your work for you? Or are you asking for someone else´s work product so that you can submit it as your own?

If you are a practicing engineer in India and planning on obtaining someone else´s work product and turning it in as your own, then I have a lot of problems with Indian engineering ethics and practices if that is being practiced and tolerated. I sincerely hope that is not the case. Can you please explain your request in detail, addressing the questions and issues I have brought up.

Thank you.
