Beam Analysis

Module Summary

  • Provides analysis capability (without design or code checking functionality) for an individual beam of specified section properties
  • Permits multi-span continuous beams
  • Permits cantilevers to be modeled at one end or both ends
  • Allows fixed or pinned support conditions
  • Incorporates point loads, concentrated moments, full-length uniform loads, partial-length uniform loads, and trapezoidal loads
  • Includes option to perform automatic unbalanced live load placement (skip-loading)
  • Offers the convenience of fill-in-the-blanks style forms and instantaneous recalculation to facilitate the evaluation of “what-if” scenarios
  • Provides highly efficient results summaries as well as generous detail in the on-screen and printed results
  • Provides rich, 3D graphics that support zoom, pan, and many customizable view options.
