Beam Section Calculator
Application ID: 26801
The Beam Section Calculator app allows you to evaluate cross section data for a wide range of American and European standard beams. Given a set of forces and moments acting on the section, you can also compute a detailed stress distribution.
Calculated cross section data can also easily be extracted for use as input data for beam analyses in COMSOL Multiphysics.
The app is built upon the Beam Cross Section interface in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software.
This application example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:Structural Mechanics Module
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
