This spreadsheet calculates the secondary effects (bending moments and shear forces) produced by the releasing moment from differential temperature effects on a continuous beam using the moment distribution method. The releasing moment for each span may be determined using Proforma 'TemperatureDiff.xls' for both the heating and cooling conditions described in BS EN 1991-1-5:2003.
* Distribution of Releasing Moments download link provides freeware version of the software.
A Plane Frame Analysis for bending moments, axial and shears forces in a plane frame structure under point loads, UDL's, linearly varying distributed loads (soil pressures) and moments.
Abnormal Load Vehicles, HB Vehicles, BD21 Annex D Vehicles and BD86 STGO Vehicles are analysed as moving loads across a single or multi-span continuous line beam to determine critical bending moments and shear forces.
This is a small engineering tool that calculates member forces and support reactions of a continuous beam. It is based on CBA. m for matlab/octave by Colin Caprani
Calculates bending moments and shear forces for loads on a single span or continuous multi-span beam using the moment distribution method.
An easy to use continuous beam analysis program for the Microsoft Windows platform.
