An easy to use steel beam calculator with inputs for span, beam size and hot rolled steel shapes. The app can calculate point loads or uniformly distributed loads. On the construction jobsite, use this app to find the calculated stress in bending, the allowable stress of your beam type and the calculated and allowed deflection.


You have a steel beam spanning the top of scaffolding and a come-along lifting from it. You want to make sure the beam is more than adequate for the load you are hoisting. You know it’s an 6” high “I” beam with 4” wide flanges that are 1/4" thick, spans 5’ and is trying to lift a 4, 000 pound load. Wouldn’t it be nice to know if the calculation supports what your gut tells you?

Just the thing

Pretty much just what I needed. My desktop copy of StruCalc failed on me and I needed some quick beam checking. This was a very affordable and most timely answer. The result jives with StruCalc's solution and my own napkin math. Wishlist? I'd really like to be able to enter the variables and pick from a list of compatible members. Or I'd like to be able to see a single screen of my entered variables and tweak them in that same screen and watch the result change. Thanks very much!
