SkyCiv Beam

SkyCiv Beam is focussed on giving users a fast and accurate analysis of beam structures. Get a simplified analysis of your beam member, including reactions, shear force, bending moment, deflection and stresses in a matter of seconds. SkyCiv Beam is fully integrated with our steel (ASIC, AS, CSA, EN) and concrete member design check software (ACI, AS and EN) for quick design checks with full reporting.

SkyCiv Engineering Software is all completely cloud based - accessed directly through any Chrome, Firefox, IE, or Safari web browser. This allows users to access their software and files wherever they need, with no need to install or update the program. This is a cost effective solution with no further costs such as maintenance or updates.

Full Hand Calculations

SkyCiv Beam Software has a feature never seen before in other products - it shows the full working out of its solution. In a clean and organised manner, SkyCiv Beam shows the full working out hand solutions for:
  • The reaction forces.
  • The shear force diagrams by method of cuts/sections.
  • The bending moment diagrams by method of cuts/sections.
Note: The full worked solution for the reaction forces will only be shown for statically determinate and non-hinged beams.

Beam Stress Solutions

  • Absolute maximum transverse shear stress and absolute maximum normal bending stresses in tension and compression will be calculated for you.
  • Evaluate the different stresses at specific points along the beam, with colored scaled results to display these in an easy to ready format.
  • The locations of these stresses on the beam section are also generated.
  • The local maximum transverse shear stress and the local maximum normal bending stress (compression and tension) at any location along the beam length can be found by entering a custom location after solving.

Section Library and Unlimited Sections

SkyCiv Structural 3D is fully integrated with SkyCiv Section Builder - our powerful section analysis software:

  • Save and Load sections from our library of Australia, European, American and UK standard sections
  • Select from 10+ template shapes including I-beam, HSS, Channel etc...
  • Your section isn't there? Simply add a custom section.
  • Perform operations such as: rotate, mirror and translate.
  • Adding a section will also give the results of moment of inertia, centroids and further section properties.
  • Preset materials means you can select your material from a drop down list for fast entry!
