"BEAMANAL.xls" is a MS-Excel spreadsheet workbook for the analysis of single-span beams (simple, propped, fixed, or cantilever) and continuous beams of up to 5 spans. The user may apply point, uniform, and varying loads, as well as applied moments. Shear, moment, slope (rotation), and deflection are computed as well as the end reactions. Shear and moment diagrams are also plotted. There is an addtional worksheet for single-span beams that also performs AISC 9th Edition Code checks for strong-axis bending (only) as well as shear.
All the worksheets are independent and self contained, so that you can move them from one workbook to another. All the worksheets are protected, but not with a password.
Please read the "DOC" worksheet for program details as well as assumptions and limitations.
Full download access to any calculation is available to users with a paid or awarded subscription (XLC Pro).
