Continuous Beam Building Construction

Continuous beam for steel and prestressed concrete, steel and timber

 

Revised Version of Program BALKEN

The revised version of the continuous beam program BALKEN provides now a possible change of material between reinforced and respectively prestressed concrete as well as structural steel and timber. And this with an ergonomic program environment with ribbon bar, quick access bar and property grids. This allows an efficient and continuous design and proofs for a multitude of tasks in structural engineering. In addition, different program options for the design of geometrical discontinuity areas in reinforced and prestressed concrete members as well as consideration of an elastic bedding of the beam is offered. BALKEN replaces and upgrades the predecessor program RTbeam at the same time in a versatile way.

 

Overview

BALKEN is a Windows® program for the calculation and design of continuous

  • Reinforced concrete
  • Structural steel
  • Timber

with graphic-interactive working environment for input and output. With BALKEN, straight continuous beams including single span beams as well as cantilever beams with or without elastic bedding can be calculated. BALKEN is a multi-purpose structural analysis program and provides the following benefits:

  • Modern interface with ribbon bar, quick access bar, tree view and property grid as well as 2D- and 3D views
  • Graphics with sensitive elements and dimension chains as well as direct display of modifications
  • Possible change of material: reinforced concrete – prestressed concrete – structural steel – timber
  • Analyses according to DIN and EN with national annexes for DE, AT, SK/CZ and UK
  • Efficient input via quick input, from a template or user-defined data records possible
  • Consideration of elastic bearings and joints
  • Fire protection certificates for reinforced concrete and timber beams
  • Load forwarding and transfer from other positions
  • Combination formation for nonlinear calculations
  • Clear program control, configuration and independent language settings DE, UK and CZ for input and output
  • Modern table-oriented result list with integrated graphics or diagrams that can be repeated at any time
  • Result output with configuration and filter options
  • Clear result output as short list, long list and detail list
  • Custom template technique

 

Loading

  • Centric or eccentric load input
  • Individual loads and moments
  • Line loads and line moments
  • Line loads constant, as trapezoidal or triangular loads
  • Temperature loads and support reduction
  • Copying loads field by field or at a distance with automatic generation of load cases
  • Automatic generation of load positions within a load case
