**What is a Continuous Beam Calculator**?

A continuous beam calculator is a tool used in structural engineering to analyze and design continuous beams.

Continuous beams are structural elements that extend over more than two supports, commonly used in building construction.

**Why use a Continuous Beam Calculator**?

**Structural Analysis:**Helps engineers analyze continuous beams for reactions, shear forces, and bending moments.**Design Optimization:**Assists in optimizing beam dimensions for cost-effectiveness and structural efficiency.**Safety Assurance:**Ensures that the beam design meets safety and structural requirements.**Code Compliance:**Helps comply with local building codes and standards.

## Continuous Beam Calculator

**How to use a Continuous Beam Calculator:**

- Enter the span length of the continuous beam.
- Select the type of support at points A and B (fixed or pinned).
- Choose the type of load (point load or uniform load).
- Enter the magnitude of the load in kips.
- Click the "Calculate" button.
- The calculator estimates reactions, shear forces, and bending moments at supports and along the length of the continuous beam.

**Example of Calculator:**

Let's say you have a continuous beam with the following specifications:

- Span Length = 20 feet
- Support A Type = Fixed
- Support B Type = Pinned
- Load Type = Point Load
- Load Value = 10 kips

Reactions: A = 5.00 kips, B = 5.00 kips

Shear Forces: A = 10.00 kips, B = 10.00 kips

Bending Moments: A = 100.00 kip-ft, B = 100.00 kip-ft
