How to use the Beam Span Calculator:

Tab "Length":

Enter the length of the beam you want to calculate.

Set the appropriate units.

Check the box "Plot Normal Forces" if you need to calculate normal forces in the beam.

Check "Reverse Moment Plot Sign" if you want positive values on the bending moment diagram to be below the horizontal axis.

Press the "Update" button to save the changes.


Tab "Supports":

Choose the type of support and place it at any point on the beam. Available types of supports include:

Pin support

Roller support

Internal hinge

Fixed support


Label the support by completing the "Symbol" field.

Press the "Add" button. The support will be added to the beam schematic.


Tab "Loads":

Choose the type of load and place it at any point on the beam. Available types of loads include:

Point load

Bending moment

Uniformly distributed load

Nonuniformly distributed load


Fill in the required fields and press "Add".

The load will be added to the beam schematic.


Verify that all entered data is correct. If necessary, use the "Edit" button for a specific support or load.

Press "Calculate".

You will be redirected to a new page with the results for your task. You can save the result to a MS Word or PDF file.â€‹â€‹
