QUIKBEAM is indispensible for the design of steel beams and composite construction.
Its innovative wizard-based approach makes it immediately productive for
the new user and powerful enough for the busy designer who expects the
facilities many simple programs lack.
Its as easy as 1-2-3
Why waste time
defining loadings, loadcases and combinations for every beam on every
project? With QUIKBEAM, you simply select the floor dimensions to add
UDL's. Just select incoming supported beams to add concentrated loads. Add
any other loadings from QUIKBEAM's wide range of standard types, choose
the design combinations and let the design wizard do the rest. Uniquely,
QUIKBEAM's loadings may be split into construction and final stages for
both simple and composite beams.
QUIKBEAM caters for most designers with a wide range of UK
and European sections but custom section files can be created using the
optional MERLIN package. Built-in, user extendable, tables of steel decks,
concrete types and studs make composite design a cinch.
Designers looking to accommodate both economy and services
requirements will like QUIKBEAM's web-openings facility. Circular and
rectangular holes may be defined, with or without stiffeners, as required.

Where QUIKBEAM really excels is in its organisation and
presentation of project data. It follows best industry practice and is
designed very much with the checker in mind. Clear diagrams showing
loading and the main results are followed by detailed calculations. Beam
results may be printed individually or combined into a fully-indexed
project report which also includes summaries of project loading standards,
beam sizes, no.off, weights, lengths and total weight.
