BeamDesign


This intuitive and feature rich finite element app is especially useful for civil engineers, mechanical engineers, architects and students who wish to design continuous beams.

You may input and edit hyperstatic beams, forces, supports etc both graphically and textually. The calculations are performed transparently in the background without disturbing your work and presented almost immediately.

Main features are:
✓ F, T and q (rectangular and triangular) loads
✓ Fixed and hinge connections at beam ends
✓ Moment, Shear, Stress, Deflection, Reaction forces and Unity checks
✓ Imposed deflections
✓ M, N, V, ux, uz, utot, phi, sigma and unity checks output
✓ Fixed, hinge and roller supports in any direction
✓ Load cases and load combinations, including safety factors
✓ Profile groups; each group can have its own color

✓ Import any steel profile or general section from our free Engineering Libraries (EU, UK, AU, US & CA profiles)
✓ Import dxf files
✓ Export to our Concrete Design and Steel Design apps

Buggy The diagram is not the same sometimes. Let's say when I put the same force and then move it around and place it back to where it were originally, the diagram is different even though everything else (length, force, position of force etc) is the same. How can I trust this if it is not consistent.

Excellent A highly useful tool. The only problem is overlapping text - labels and results. Often its hard to read your results.

Not bad The labels on the different objects tend to overlap a lot, which makes reading the results a bit of a pain. Other than that pretty neat and very helpful.
