Does anybody would know of a ?freeware beam analysis program?

RE: Beam software

Numerous programs exist - check http://www.calculator.com - they have several. Also, shareware and demo versions of many programs exist too. Http://www.cedarhouse.com offers beam programs. Beam analysis formula with material properties and section area formulas are available at http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/mjvanvoorhis/techdata.htm . Even finite element analysis software (demo) is available - see http://cadre_analytic.com .

RE: Beam software

YIKES! The sites listed in the previous reply do not have MathCAD specific analysis programs! I responded before I realized I was in the MathCAD forum.

Sorry :(

RE: Beam software

Don't be sorry Mike, you got the answer right on,
I was actually refering to general software, for some reason
I placed it on the Mathcad forum
