BEAM

Composite Design

Design of primary, secondary and mixed primary-secondary composite beams with or without web openings. Design using BS & EuroCodes.

MasterBeam Composite Beam Design provides a powerful and extremely user friendly program for the design of primary, secondary and mixed primary-secondary composite beams with or without web openings. Design using EuroCode 4 or BS 5950.

Due to the many advanced design features, this program has become the UK industry standard for composite beam design. Used in conjunction with the 3D Model Manager, MasterBeam Composite Beam allows you to interactively design a whole frame by integrating with the frame model. This dramatically reduces design time and ensures accurate transfer of loads between members.
