Steel Beam Design Spreadsheet to BS 5950

 

Description:

 

Essential spreadsheet for steel design. Due to its form, easy input and clear output it reduces time required for designing steel members. It includes lateral torsional buckling check therefore is a comprehensive and an important tool for structural engineers.
Features:
– A clear and easy to read output (all on a single page);
– Quick summary of utilization factors;
– Change steel grade: S275; S355; S460;
– Supported steel sections: UC, UB, PFC;
– Design for Lateral Torsional Buckling (LTB) based on effective length;
– Loading options: UDL, 2x Partial UDL, 2x Point Load;
– ‘Live’ Loading diagram;
– Change between deflection for Dead Load + Imposed Load or Imposed Load only;
– Changeable safety factors;
– Design is based on British Standard (BS 5950:1 2000).
