Solve beam deflection problems easily and obtain results, graphs, and equations to double-check your work!
This is a great learning tool for mechanical engineering, civil engineering, and architecture students. It is an excellent companion for engineering statics and mechanics of materials college-level courses. While you should not rely on this tool for professional engineering design, you may still find it useful to double-check your hand calculations and results.
INTUITIVE TOUCH-BASED INTERACTION
Quickly place loads and supports along the beam using a powerful interactive graphical design. Our solver algorithm will automatically handle individual sections and superposition of loads.
Immediately see how the beam bends in response to the applied conditions. The shear, moment, slope, and deflection diagrams and equations update automatically.
UNLIMITED LOADS AND SUPPORTS
Each type of load and support has a different icon. You can simply drag any of them onto the beam.
• Concentrated point loads
• Distributed loads
• Moment loads
• Simple supports
• Fixed supports
• Fixed hinges
• Floating Gerber hinges
BUILT-IN CROSS SECTIONS AND MATERIALS
Either specify moment of inertia and elastic modulus values directly, or find common shapes and materials using the built-in databases.
• Steel: American and European shapes
• Lumber: American shapes
• Other materials can be used used with custom shapes.
INTEGRATED CROSS SECTION EDITOR
Easily edit and rotate cross sections if the built-in dimensions do not quite match your use case. The beam properties are automatically recomputed and used by the beam deflection solver.
• Metric and standard measurement units
• Smart diagrams automatically detect local maxima and minima and zero-crossings.
• Your work is automatically saved in separate files so you can return to it in the future.
• Quick-start templates help you to start right away!
