Steel Beam Calculator to AS4100:1998 (R2016)

Easy to use online Steel Beam software for Australian & New Zealand standards.


The ClearCalcs steel beam calculator enables the fast design and analysis of a steel beam with multiple supports and loads. Engineers can quickly and easily model any type of steel beam, including steel floor and roof beams with a handy range of presets that reduce repetitive data entry and improve accuracy. Loads can be dynamically linked between structural elements, so beams, columns, and connections can easily be linked and checked for adequacy.

Presets Available

Presets enable you to quickly design a wide range of different calculation types using smart, prefilled settings to save time.
