Key Features of FlexBeam
There are two versions of FlexBeam for calculating beam deflection and buckling: FlexBeam Pro and FlexBeam Lite. FlexBeam Pro has full functionality. The most important features of FlexBeam Pro and Lite are:
|Calculate beam deflection|
|Calculate buckling (new in release 2.0)|
|four different types of beam support|
|automatic calculation of the second moment of area for various beam cross-sections||4||23|
|various standard profiles (IPE, HEA, HEB, HEM, UBP, UB, ASTM, UC, PFC, UPN (UNP), UPE, HD and square, rectangular and circular hollow sections)||17|
|entering a known second moment of area|
|managing a materials selection list|
|metric units and imperial units|
|calculation of maximum beam deflection, stress and slope|
|calculation of the beam deflection, stress and slope at any desired position|
|calculation reaction forces|
|buckling calculation around X- and Y-axis with central load and with eccentric load|
|diagram of the deflection and slope|
|diagram of the stress and shear force|
|copying all entered data and calculation results to the Windows clipboard|
|saving the last calculation|
|printing of the load case and results, including diagrams|
|languages English and Dutch|
