spBeam Description

spBeam (formerly pcaBeam) is highly efficient and widely used for analysis, design, and investigation of beams and one-way slabs in reinforced concrete floor systems.

As a limited edition of spSlab, spBeam features torsion effects in the shear design and investigation allowing engineers to achieve more economical cross sections where coupled shear and torsion occur (in accordance with US and Canadian codes). Save more in both material and labor with the moment redistribution feature. It allows up to 20% reduction of negative moments over supports reducing reinforcement congestions in these areas.

spBeam performs a complete design for flexure and shear, and outputs resulting reinforcement schedules (including bar numbers, sizes, lengths, and spacing). Torsional effects and moment redistribution can be considered. spBeam offers a great deal of flexibility by allowing the user to modify the reinforcement configuration proposed by the program by switching from Design to Investigation mode. In the Investigation mode, the longitudinal and transverse reinforcement capacities of the entire system are computed for a given reinforcement configuration.
