The Three-Moment Equation for Continuous-Beam Analysis CEE 201L. This spreadsheet undertakes the analysis of a user specified beam which spans continuously over 1, 2, 3 or 4 supports, subject to user defined loads and support conditions.
Uncertainty, Design, and Optimization Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Duke University Henri P. Gavin Spring, 2009 Consider a continuous beam over several supports carrying arbitrary loads, w(x). I would like to be able to modify it to have moment-release supports. Continuous Beam Analysis Spreadsheet. S7.3 The continuous beam shown in Figure S7.3 has a second moment of area of 376 in 4 and a modulus of elasticity of 29,000 kips/in 2. This is a fantastic program, and thank you for sharing it. Determine the bending moments produced in the beam by a settlement of support 1 by 1 in, support 2 by 2 in, and support 3 by 1 in.
Re: Analysis of 3 to 5 span continuous beam ? It allows you to modify and analyse maximum to 3 span continuous beams.
Using the Moment-Area Theorem, we will analyze two adjoining spans of this beam to ﬁnd the relationship … That allows to understand and appreciate the spreadsheet. However the loading has been limited to UDL on 1 and 3 span and a fully working loading conditions on 2nd span. FREE Lite version: Continuous beam a nalysis (2.1).
