About this app

This Finite Element Method (FEM) app is especially useful for civil engineers, mechanical engineers, architects and students who wish to design 1D hyperstatic frames.

You can input and edit geometry, forces, supports, loadcases etc. The calculation results are performed instantly.

Main features include:
✓ F, T and q (rectangular and triangular) loads
✓ Fixed and hinge connections at beam ends
✓ Fixed, hinge, roller and spring supports in any direction
✓ Imposed deflections
✓ Add or edit materials
✓ Add or edit sections
✓ Load cases and load combinations, including safety factors
✓ Moment, Shear, Stress, Deflection, Reaction forces and Unity checks

It's an awesome app. Been really helpful. Although when I put in value for *imposed deflection it does not reflect on my calculation. So it means the app can not solve beams or frames with settlement or imposed deflection. I will like to hear from the developers.

Thank you! Please send a screenshot with to problem to Make sure you input the imposed deflection in the correct direction. Sometimes it helps to input a very large deflection (e.g.300mm) so you can clearly validate the results (the overal deflection dtot).

Therr are times where, the distance is not accurate. I.e. when you input 3m, but it will put the distance on 2.999m. Hope you fix this. Great app anyways!

Works great for checking work. The Export function causes the app to crash, though. I'd really like that feature.

Just uploaded new version that fixes it

What's new

- Faster solver
- Adds inverted color for negative normal stresses
- Properly displays displacements in report
- Now displays reaction forces in report
- Displays reaction forces for spring supports
- Fixes side menu behind content on older phones
