What is a Beam Loading Calculator?
A “Beam Loading Calculator” is a tool that helps analyze the effects of various loads on a beam, such as point loads, distributed loads, and moments.
It calculates reactions at supports and provides information on maximum deflection.
Why use a Beam Loading Calculator?
Using this calculator is important for several reasons:
- Structural analysis: Helps engineers understand how different loads affect beams and supports.
- Design considerations: Guides the design of beams to ensure they can safely support the expected loads.
- Deflection analysis: Assists in determining the maximum deflection of a beam under applied loads.
