AT A REASONABLE PRICE
This page can be used to find the deflection, and also the maximum stress of a simply supported beam, the calculator always factors in the beams own weight and adds it to the loads you specify. Choose from Australian steel sections, UNIVERSAL BEAMS, PARALLEL FLANGE CHANNEL, UNIVERSAL COLUMNS, and Z/C PURLINS. Also the beam deflection of RHS can be found. The material type is limited to steel (Modulus of Elasticity 210 000 MPa), wood, and aluminium. All input values must be metric.
Deflection under own weight:
Deflection from load:
Deflection from continuous load:
For custom sizes select, USE VALUES BELOW from section dropdown.
Leave the flange thickness, (wall thickness), blank to specify a solid.
The units must be in mm.
