Cold-Formed Steel BeamDesign Description

Cold-Formed Steel BeamDesign is a friendly and powerful software for the design of flexural members of Cold-Formed Steel, following AISI 2001 and 1996/99 Specifications.

The principal aim is to analyze a simple or continuous beam (2 to 4 equal spans) and to determine the permitted load (Uniform or Concentrated Load allowed) carrying capacity, while varying the span length (L). Also you can compare one section and two different steels, or two sections with the same steel.

In this new version user is able to know the load-carrying capacity value for a specific span length, being displayed these values in the References window.

ASD or LRFD approaches, determine Wall (W-allowable) or Wu (W-ultimate), showed by Envelope Curves and Tables, or optionally their respectively seven Wi simple components and Weq (Equivalent to Construction Load).

As efficient coefficients (W/Weight), for ratio between Load-Carrying Capacity and Full Sectional Weight are giving by Envelope Tables, users can optimize designs, by choosing their proper Section, Steel and restrictions.

Fourteen different sections are allowed (C, U, Z, ZU, L, LU, H, RB, SB, IC, CC, IU, T, and TU), with selected Steels (16 ASTM Referenced Standards Steels are provided as a guide). BeamDesign comes with the section dimensions from the AISI Manual for each shape, and also user can create new section dimensions. In this new version we add tables for the following manufacturers: Dietrich, Marino-Ware and SSMA.

Another feature from BeamDesign is you can calculate Geometric and Effective Properties for provided sections and also for sections created by user.

All Curves and Tables are available for printing with the complete information on headers.

Besides engineers and other professionals, teachers and students also may be able to profit the versatility of our sofware, changing optional parameters to obtain different curves and tables or studying the Nominal Flexural Strength for Lateral Buckling Moment (Mnb) versus L (Span Length) for different Shapes and Steels, or comparing "C" and "Z" curves with AISI Design Manual Charts.

The Demo Version contains all the capabilities of the Full Version, with the following exceptions:

  • It is limited by the number of Sections that can be used.
  • Only C Section is available.
  • Only two dimensions are available with C Section.
  • Only Simple Span is available
  • You can not change the default Sections Table.
  • You can not change the defauslt Materials Table.
  • You can not edit the Sections Table.
  • You can not edit the Materials Table.
  • You can not print.
  • Demo can only be used for evaluation purposes. All commercial use is forbidden.
