Beam Spreadsheet Calculations
John Andrew, P.E.
Step-by-step illustrated examples show how to use the spread sheet tools to optimize bolted joint designs. This course is divided into 8 sections:
1. Overview of major beam types.
3. Beams with Pined Ends
4. Beams with Fixed Ends
5. Beams with Fixed & Pinned Ends
6. Continuous Beams
7. Truss Type Beams
8. Excel Math Tools
The course includes
a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding
of the course materials.
This course uses Excel spreadsheets to:
The information will be especially useful to: students, engineers, architects, and innovators who want to a convenient method for calculating the strength beams and bolted connections.
Benefit to Attendees
Attendee of this course will have live spread sheets for calculating the strength of the most common types of beam applications.
This course adheres to the recommendations of the American Institute of Steel Construction, AISC.
You need to download and study the following spreadsheet:
DISCLAMER: "This spreadsheet is provided for illustrative teaching purpose only, and is not intended for use in any specific project. Anyone making use of theinformation contained in this spreadsheet does so at his/her own risk and assumes any and all resulting liability arising therefrom."
A brief and to the point summary is provided in these lesson notes and Excel spreadsheets that will provide information that can be used to solve beam design problems and create new calculation methods.
