Equations in MS word?

I'm simulating turbulent, non premixed gas combustion using the eddy dissipation model.

This is very lazy of me but does anyone have a list of the consevation equations involved in this type of simulation, done in MSword. Either in equation editor or Mathtype.

It will take ages for me to type them into word, so if anybody already has a list of them done this would save me alot of time and pain.

If you could forward them to my email above that would be great!!!!

Thanks, I look forward to recieving the equations!

I was thinking of replying to this post but it will take me ages to type in a response, i was just wondering if someone had a M$ Word file i could just post here instead?

Thanks ;-)

If you can't do otherwise, you could scan your equations and insert them in your document, or cut them from an existing document and paste them as images in your work. I doubt however you'll obtain great results this way.

In FLUENT manual, in the tooltip text, you can also see LaTeX commands to reproduce the equation you're seeing, and MathType can import LaTeX.

Anyway, if you need to do a work with many equations, Word is not a good choice. You should switch to something more specific like LaTeX or Acrobat.

LaTeX is available on almost all Unix and Linux systems, with the name of teTeX. While a free and user-friendly LaTeX distribuition for Windows is MikTeX , which can be downloaded from

Learning LaTeX requires little time but you'll recover it when you won't have to rearrange your document layout every times you insert an image or a footnote.

Re: Equations in MS word?

Just a simple question! I also use LaTeX for writing my reports, but Powerpoint for presentations. I copy paste equations in Powerpoint since i have no fun retyping them in equation editor. But the last time during my presentation all (well not all - thats also a bi wierd) the equation appeard upside down and mirrored...Well I managed to get out of the mess...Does anyone have a better solution for importing equations in Powerpoint. I know i should probabilly use pdf TeX for presentation but that's a problem if you have animations....

Re: Equations in MS word?
If you use standard LaTeX commands and packages, you can directly compile your document to HTML, using LaTeX2Html.

All equations are saved as PNG images by LaTeX2Html, in a directory with the same name of your main document, located in the same directory where the main document was saved.

After compilation, you can easily import PNG images in Powerpoint.

That sounds very attractive. Thanks for the info, ap!
