Re: Spreadsheet Continuous Beam Analysis

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I created a continuous beam analysis program when I was still in college 17
years ago. It uses moment distribution method, locates maximum  positive
moment and  displays the
moment and shear diagram and also the moment distribution calculations. Beam
data can be generated for multiple spans.The program in its latest form is a
Microsoft QUICKBASIC executable file.

I will upload it if  anybody is interested.
