Eriksson Beam allows the engineer to quickly analyze and design precast/prestressed concrete beams in accordance with ACI 318-. All types of horizontal precast members can be designed, including double tees, inverted tees, spandrels and hollow core slabs. Also included are sections that require a principal axis analysis, such as stadium risers. Reinforcement can be any combination of prestressing strand, rebar, and mesh. Multiple holes in both beam webs and decks can be modelled. A general purpose polygon editor is included for the design of unusual cross sections. Beam’s fast and accurate computational engine includes many advanced features, such as cracked sections, strain compatibility, concrete stress-strain curves, biaxial bending, slender spandrels, and more. Output consists of a mix of text and graphs, allowing the user to quickly converge on a workable design. The one-page Performance Summary, along with the one-page Reinforcement Sketch can be used as a concise submittal package. A 3D model is generated as a visualization tool to confirm your design.
