In order to build a structure or house which is up to standard, you need to make proper design calculations and measurements for the support beams and columns or you will have your building crashing in a matter of months. While there are several manual measurement tools on the market which you can rely on, they are limited in their capabilities.
This is a measurement application that provides you with accurate calculations of the support beams you want to use in your construction work. These ranges from steel and timber beams to columns. The application provides you with the length, width, height, bending, deflection and shear, and also allowing you to configure the unit of measurement so as to be in accordance with your building requirements.
The application enables you to design steel beams and columns, and timber beams, posts and studs based on the construction project. Once you have input the necessary information and apply it, the application will display the Loading, bending moment and shear force diagrams, and there is an option to print it. This enables you to go through the design, search for any errors, make the necessary changes and view the diagrams again to ensure your calculations is right on point.
Overall, it can come in handy if you are a professional structural engineer.
