Concrete Beams Analysis with Beam Express

Beam Express provides engineers the most efficient way to calculate concrete beams.

The Beam Express and the Beam Express Pro are excel spreadsheets for calculating continuous beams.

While Beam Express can analyse beams loaded by uniformly distributed loads, the Beam Express Pro is an advanced program (though running without any macro!) calculating automatically the force envelopes and then, the reinforcement for both flexion and shear forces, according to the Eurocode 2. In addition to uniformly distributed loads, with the Beam Express Pro also Trapezoid loads, concentrated loads and moments can be introduced.
