This app will calculate the approximate maximum span of a beam, joist, etc. with a symmetric cross section based on the following inputs (Most are automatically entered using the picker views):
- Point Dead Load Applied at Centre
- Dead Distributed Load
- Point Live Load Applied at Centre
- Live Distributed Load
- Maximum Stress
- Modulus of Elasticity
- Live Load Deflection Limit (Fraction of Span)
- Total Load Deflection Limit (Fraction of Span)
This app operates in U.S. units by default although there is a setting to use metric units (picker views always display in imperial but will enter metric values if the app is set to metric).
This app has an option for a light or dark appearance.
This app makes several assumptions and approximations and neglects multiple factors that are necessary to consider including but not limited to neglecting shear.
More features may be added in an update released later.
