Structural Engineering Calculation Software

Beam on Elastic Foundation Analysis & Design

Module Summary

  • Analyzes and designs individual soil-supported reinforced concrete beams
  • Permits up to six groups of reinforcing bars per span
  • Capable of analyzing and designing rectangular, tee, H, and trapezoidal shaped sections
  • Incorporates point loads, concentrated moments, full and partial-length uniform loads, and trapezoidal loads
  • Considers user-specified allowable soil bearing pressure
  • 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 sketch graphics to verify dimensions and load placement – including rich, 3D graphics that support zoom, pan, and many customizable view options. Example 3D image shown below.
  • Provides shear, moment and deflection diagrams for all load cases
