Beam Section Calculator (Using LiveLink™ for Excel®)
Application ID: 26811
This app demonstrates the following:
- Reading and importing data from an Excel®-file
- Exporting data to an Excel®-file
- Light theme
The app computes the beam section properties and true stress distribution in a designated steel beam section. A broad range of American and European beam standards are available. It uses LiveLink™ for Excel® to read and store the beam data in Excel® worksheets.
Requires the Structural Mechanics Module and LiveLink™ for Excel®.
This application example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
