Free Online Beam Calculator

1.Introduction

Hello and welcome to your first structure analysis tutorial.

In this tutorials , we will create our free account and first project.

In the end of this tutorial , you will be able to use this powerful tool and calculate any structure easily.

You can check out the full project in this link .So let's start it

2.Design Structure

Nodes

Define nodes with these coordinates Bars

Define bar 1 with these start and end nodes Supports

Apply support pinned to node 1 and roller x to node 2 Materials

Define material m1 with Young Modulus equal to 24000 megapascal Sections

Define rectangular section s1 with m1 material you just create and these dimensions. apply section s1 to bar 1 Define Uniform Load q with magnitude of -20 Kilo-newton per meter in direction of Z in global system Apply Uniform Load q to bar 1 4.Calculate And Get Results

Calculate

Verify your structure and click solve to start calculate Reactions

the reactions of the structure equal to :

• 40 kilonewton in direction of Z in node 1
• 40 kilonewton in direction of Z in node 4 Detailed Analysis

the length of beam 3 equal to 4 m and its section s1 has Area equal to 740 cm2 and Moment of Inertia(Iy) equal to 84421.67 cm4

The maximum bending moment is -40 kilonewton meter for x equal to 2 metre The maximum displacement in direction of Z is -2.604 millimetre for x equal to 2 metre 5.Conclusion:

Now you become able to use this powerful tool and calculate any structure easily.
