Cbeam is a continuous beam software package that allows the user to solve statically indeterminate beam structures. Multiple span elements of like or varying elasticity, along with uniform, distributed, and concentrated loads, and defined support and hinge conditions are available to the user.
Review of shear, moment and deflection diagrams
Varying elasticity values for material selections
Built in steel and aluminum database for member section properties
Batch plotting available along with user defined data and sequential page numbering
In addition to the Cbeam R5 key features (left), the 2021 update release offers additional benefits (right) that aide the user in new computation methods, design parameter reviews, and expanded report notations in the viewer beam report.
Within the same intuitive interface, the user can take advantage of the Design Parameters tab to compare computed results to defined deflection, and stress limits; report deadload reaction magnitude for applicable levels and SMART labeling on the viewer model.
