One of the most powerful functions is using it as a beam deflection calculator (or beam displacement calculator). This can be used to observe the calculated deflection of a simply supported beam or of a cantilever beam. Being able to add section shapes and materials, this makes it useful as a wood beam calculator or as a steel beam calculator for lvl beam or i beam design. For now, this functionality is available in SkyCiv Beam which has a lot more functionality for timber, concrete and steel beam design.
In engineering, it's important to understand and calculate beam deflection because it can affect the overall strength and stability of a structure. Too much deflection can result in failure, so engineers need to design beams that are strong enough to resist deflection under the loads they will experience. Beam deflection is one of the serviceability criteria that engineers consider when designing structures. This is because excessive deflection can result in unwanted aesthetic effects, such as sagging floors, cracking of finishes, or discomfort for the users. Therefore, engineers aim to limit deflection to acceptable levels so that the structure performs satisfactorily and provides a comfortable environment for the users.
What materials can this beam load calculator calculateThe quick answer is anything! The above tool can be used as a steel beam calculator, a timber calculator or even used for concrete structures. The input for material can be changed to suite whatever material you wish to design. For instance, as a steel beam calculator the user would enter in a Young's Modulus of about 200,000 MPa (or 29,000 ksi for imperial units). For simplicity, the free tool only takes the materials Young's Modulus, however our full version will also take in Yield/Ultimate Strength, Density and Poisson's Ratio.
SkyCiv's above reaction forces beam calculator is capable of quickly and easily calculating the support reaction forces of your cantilever or simply supported beams. Add a number of forces and different support conditions and locations to get the reactions at supports. Want to learn more about reactions, read on for a detailed guide on reaction forces.
The beam span calculator will easily calculate the reactions at supports. It is able to calculate the reactions at supports for cantilever or simple beams. This includes calculating the reactions for a cantilever beam, which has a bending moment reaction as well as x,y reaction forces. The reactions at supports are also useful in calculating the entire force in the structure. Simply add these values together, and you can calculate the total amount of force applied to your structure.
Obviously this is just a simple example and more complex structures will require additional calculations to determine the reaction forces - for this we have a more detailed tutorial on how to calculate reaction forces in a beam. Additionally, in real-world scenarios, the beam may also experience other loads and forces such as shear, bending moment, and deflection, which need to be considered in the analysis and design. SkyCiv's above beam load calculator can be used to calculate reaction forces for beams with simple supports or cantilever supports. So we can verify the results using the above calculator:
Bending Moment Diagrams can be quickly and easily generated using the above calculator. Within minutes, you'll have neat and clear diagrams, no matter how complex the beam. To calculate a bending moment diagram using the above beam load calculator, simply:
The above steel beam span calculator is a versatile structural engineering tool used to calculate the bending moment in an aluminium, wood or steel beam. It can also be used as a beam load capacity calculator by using it as a bending stress or shear stress calculator. It is able to accommodate up to 2 different concentrated point loads, 2 distributed loads and 2 moments. The distributed loads can be arranged so that they are uniformly distributed loads (UDL), triangular distributed loads or trapezoidal distributed loads. All loads and moments can be of both upwards or downward direction in magnitude, which should be able to account for most common beam analysis situations. Bending Moment and Shear Force calculations may take up to 10 seconds to appear and please note you will be directed to a new page with the reactions, shear force diagram and bending moment diagram of the beam.
Furthermore, Graphing Calculator by Mathlab displays calculations as it performs them on the high-quality display of the Android device, making it easier for the user to understand the calculations and see them clearly. This app has two great strengths. First, it acts as a fine scientific calculator, but, more than that, it displays the intermediate steps of the calculations as you type. It allows the students to both watch and learn how the calculations are made and how to find the final answer. Second, the graphing ability is absolutely stunning! Not only does the calculator beautifully display the graphs, but it automatically generates the x- and y- values and displays them as well.
Graphing Calculator 3D from Runitor is a handy and free 3D graphing utility that plots graphs for two-and three-dimensional mathematical functions and coordinates tables.

Graphing Calculator boasts an attractive and functional if slightly cluttered interface that the developer claims was designed with frequency of use in mind. There's no doubt that it's logically configured, but it's certainly geared toward those with the knowledge and skills to need or use graphing software. To the mathematically challenged, it's a little intimidating, but the program isn't difficult to learn or use. Among its handy time-savers are instantaneous plotting with each keystroke and single-click access for frequently used tools and features. The three-dimensional graphs it produces are stunning, with high color contrast, animation, full rotational motion.
The TI-84 Plus is a graphing calculator made by Texas Instruments which was released in early 2004. There is no original TI-84, only the TI-84 Plus, the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition models, and the TI-84 Plus CE. The TI-84 Plus is an enhanced version of the TI-83 Plus. The key-by-key correspondence is relatively the same, but the TI-84 features improved hardware. The archive (ROM) is about 3 times as large, and the CPU is about 2.5 times as fast (over the TI-83 and TI-83 Plus). A USB port and built-in clock functionality were also added. The USB port on the TI-84 Plus series is USB On-The-Go compliant, similar to the next generation TI-Nspire calculator, which supports connecting to USB based data collection devices and probes, and supports device to device transfers over USB rather than over the serial link port.
The TI-84 Plus Silver Edition was released in 2004 as an upgrade to the TI-83 Plus. Like the TI-83 Plus Silver Edition, it features a 15 MHz Zilog Z80 processor and 24 kB of user-available RAM. The chip has 128 kB, but Texas Instruments has not made an OS that uses all of it. Newer calculators have a RAM chip that has only 48 kB. All calculators with the letter H or later as the last letter in the serial code have fewer RAM pages, causing some programs to not run correctly. There is 1.5 MB of user-accessible Flash ROM. Like the standard TI-84 Plus, the Silver Edition includes a built-in USB port, a built-in clock, and assembly support. It uses 4 AAA batteries and a backup button cell battery. The TI-84 Plus Silver Edition comes preloaded with a variety of applications. These programs are also available for the TI-84 Plus, but some must be downloaded separately from TI's website. It is manufactured by Kinpo Electronics.
In 2015, Texas Instruments released the TI-84 Plus T in the Netherlands. This model is very similar to the original TI-84 Plus, but features an LED to indicate whether or not the calculator is in Exam Mode. The hardware of the TI-84 Plus T is similar to the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition, with ninety-six 16 kB pages of archive memory, for a total of 1540 kB. However, unlike the TI-84 Plus, the TI-84 Plus T does not allow users to execute assembly programs. The TI-84 Plus T has 2 different Exam Modes available with different levels of restrictiveness. The most restrictive level does not allow for any existing programs to be accessed, and does not allow any new programs to be created. This mode makes the LED blink green. The second, more moderate Exam Mode is the same, apart from three additional applications being allowed (PlySmlt2, Inequalz and Conics). This mode makes the LED blink orange. 153554b96e
