What is a Load Bearing Calculator?
A “Load Bearing Calculator” is a tool that helps determine the load-bearing capacity of a structural element, such as a beam or column.
It considers factors such as the material, cross-sectional area, and applied load.
Why use a Load Bearing Calculator?
Using this calculator is important for several reasons:
- Safety: Ensures that structural elements can safely support the loads they will experience.
- Material selection: Assists in selecting the appropriate material for a given application based on load requirements.
- Design considerations: Guides engineers in designing structures that meet or exceed safety standards.
