Web Page Embedded Euler Beam Calculator

The Euler Beam Calculator shown below is a web page (this page) embedded active Excel spreadsheet.  It uses the Microsoft SkyDrive file sharing system and does not require the user to have Excel to use.

This calculator will solve a user defined multi-span beam.  Up to 5 beam segments can be input each with its own elastic modulus, bending area moment-of-inertia, and top and bottom section moduli. Concentrated loads and moments can be input along with slope and displacement boundary conditions.

The solution provides a deflection chart, moment and shear diagrams and stress plots.  The calculator updates immediately as cells are changed.

This calculator is active.  Change a cell and watch it update the solution.
