computeIT for Beams provides users with an easy to use interface that allows engineers to:

  • Enter complex beam design situations, including statically indeterminate beams and cantilevers
  • Input a number of different load types including point loads, UDLs and trapezoidal/triangular loads
  • Enter beam restraint information for calculation of capacities in accordance with AS 1720.1:2010
  • Make engineering decisions based on engineering outputs including deflection, bending moment and shear force diagrams
  • Design connections using a number of common connection details
  • Analyse a number of different members to produce cost-effective design solutions
  • View graphical representation of beam geometry, loading and design action effect diagrams
  • Select loading combinations to AS/NZS 1170
  • Apply design actions from other members within a job
  • Create a job specific Engineering Analysis Report including designed members and connections
