Beams on Elastic Foundation spreadsheet
Beams on Elastic Foundation is a spreadsheet program written in MS-Excel for the purpose of analysis a finite length beam with free ends supported continuously on an elastic foundation.
This program is ideally suited for analyzing a soil supported beam, a combined footing, or a strip of a slab or a mat.
Specifically, the beam shear, moment, deflection, and soil bearing pressure are calculated for 100 equal beam segments, as well as the maximum values. Plots of both the shear, moment, and soil bearing pressure diagrams are produced, as well as a tabulation of the shear, moment, deflection, and bearing pressure for the beam. This program is a workbook consisting of three (3) worksheets, described as follows:
- Doc – documentation sheet
- Beam on Elastic Fdn. (English) – Beam on elastic foundation analysis (English units)
- Beam on Elastic Fdn. (metric) – Beam on elastic foundation analysis (metric units)
