SINGLE SPAN BEAM USE CASE

Challenge

GHI Structural Engineering needed to design and analyze a series of single-span beams for a residential building project. The objective was to ensure these beams could safely support varying loads, including non-uniformly distributed loads, while complying with local building codes. The analysis required rapid and accurate results to keep the project on schedule and to facilitate quick design iterations.

Solution

The engineering team chose Prokon Single Span Beam for its ease of use and efficiency in delivering rapid results. They started by inputting the beam dimensions, material properties, and load cases into the software. The loads included non-uniformly distributed loads to reflect real-world conditions.

The team utilised the software’s integration with Combine to perform code-based design checks, ensuring compliance with relevant standards. Prokon’s intuitive interface and advanced analysis capabilities allowed for quick setup and execution of multiple load scenarios.

Results

Prokon Single Span Beam provided detailed analysis of the beams, including deflection, bending moment, shear assessments and overall structural integrity under various loading conditions. The software’s ability to handle non-uniform distributed loads offered precise insights into potential problem areas.

The integration with Combine ensured that all designs met local code requirements, streamlining the approval process. As a result, GHI Structural Engineering was able to deliver a safe, compliant, and efficient beam design quickly, maintaining project timelines and ensuring structural reliability. allowing for detailed deflection-, bending moment- and shear assessments.
