Beam Analysis – Spreadsheets and Sources
For the next issue of the book, (the current issue will be available to the general public for free at the end of September) we will be adding a beam analysis section. However, as with the rest of the content for the book, we want to give reference to a trusted external source for the methods we use. In this case, and after some deliberation, we have settled on the NASA-TM-X-73305 Structures Manual. It covers some beam configurations I have not seen covered elsewhere and the whole beam analysis section is excellent.
We have started by creating the spreadsheets for cantilever beams and these have now been posted, you can access a list of them here:
