About this app

Beam HPC app calculates the moment, shear, deflection and rotation diagrams for a beam with various types of loading. Loading types include forces, moments and distributed loads. The load location and magnitude can be changed at any time. There are three types of supports (i.e. boundary conditions) including pinned, fixed and vertical roller. Each beam can be split into sub-beam segments. Each beam segment can have a different moment of inertia (I) and stiffness (E). The user can click and drag all items to quickly change and compare results. This program is designed for educational uses only. It should not be used for commercial purposes. There is no warranty or guarantee the results are accurate, and the user accepts all responsibility for values calculated.

Unable to perform beyond example. --+ The example runs well.--- After the example the you are unable to enter new information related to: supports and so on. --- The problem isn't about translation, it's about operation and performance of this app. --- It does needs to be fixed.

Sorry that you are having problems. I cannot duplicate your problem. Click on any top button, and it will add that item. Click on the item (supports included), and you can edit it. Please give detail steps that cause you the problem so I can duplicate it and fix if needed.

Okay, you should be able to select the convention needed. Eg +ve BM on bottom and +ve shear on bottom for diagrams. Also trying to find max BM from diagram is a pain as you have to scroll across. The max and min values should be displayed after inputting the beam values

Not sure what you mean by 'convention needed'. Units can be changed with menu. Positive and negative values on chart are standard convention used in most textbooks. This is an educational tool, and not a commercial app. Giving max value would be a nice feature in the future. Please reconsider your rating based on existing features. Thanks.

i dont understand those who give low rate to this app. This is a free no ads and very useful for students. Calculates deflection, rotation, moment and shear. Thanks for this work and efforts very much.
