Program Description

The effective span and maximum bearing pressure for a plate girder with no specific bearing is calculated in accordance with BD 56/10 clause 16 and Figure 16.1A.

The spreadsheet assumes that the layout at the ends of the beam are the same. If the girder has different end layouts then two spreadsheets will be required (one for each arrangement) and the average of the two results will give the effective span.
