**What is a Beam Capacity Calculator**?

A beam capacity calculator estimates the maximum load that a beam can support based on parameters such as beam length, width, depth, applied load, and material properties.

**Why use a Beam Capacity Calculator**?

**Structural Safety:**Ensures that a beam is designed within its load-carrying capacity to prevent failure.**Code Compliance:**Helps comply with building codes and standards regarding beam capacities.**Design Optimization:**Assists in optimizing the design of beams for specific loading conditions.**Material Selection:**Supports decisions on material selection based on load-bearing requirements.

## Beam Capacity Calculator

**How to use a Beam Capacity Calculator:**

- Input the beam's dimensions (length, width, and depth) and the applied load into the calculator.
- Click the "Calculate" button.
- The calculator performs calculations based on structural engineering principles.
- The result typically includes the maximum allowable load that the beam can support.

**Example of Calculator:**

Let's say you have a beam with a length of 10 feet, a width of 6 inches, a depth of 8 inches, and an applied load of 5000 pounds.

- Beam Length = 10 feet
- Beam Width = 6 inches
- Beam Depth = 8 inches
- Applied Load = 5000 pounds

Maximum Allowable Load: 102400.00 pounds.
