**What is an I-Beam Capacity Calculator**?

An I-beam capacity calculator estimates the maximum load that an I-beam can support based on parameters such as length, width, depth, flange width, flange depth, and applied load.

**Why use an I-Beam Capacity Calculator**?

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

## I-Beam Capacity Calculator

**How to use an I-Beam Capacity Calculator:**

- Input the dimensions of the I-beam (length, width, depth, flange width, and flange 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 I-beam can support.

**Example of Calculator:**

Let's say you have an I-beam with a length of 12 feet, a width of 8 inches, a depth of 12 inches, flange width of 6 inches, flange depth of 2 inches, and an applied load of 20,000 pounds.

- Beam Length = 12 feet
- Beam Width = 8 inches
- Beam Depth = 12 inches
- Flange Width = 6 inches
- Flange Depth = 2 inches
- Applied Load = 20,000 pounds

Maximum Allowable Load: 382666.67 pounds.
