KingBeam is a software
development for FIELDERS to be utilised to promote their products
in the Australian Market.
KingBeam has been developed in conjunction with MP Engineering
and is a stand alone piece of software for the design of composite
simply supported beams in accordance with the Australian Standard
All the input for this software is entered through a user friendly
graphical interface. This includes all beam dimensions and the
slab details. Through this interface the user steps through the
various stages of input starting with the beam parameters then
onto defining the loading conditions at the various stages of
Once the user inputs are defined the software determines the required
shear connection to design the beam under partial shear conditions.
Through the graphical interface the user can investigate the applied
moments, shears at any stage and print off the corresponding stresses,
and deflections. The compliance with the standard in relation
to maximum stresses and deflections are also checked.
As with all software developed by ABES, KingBeam has
been designed as an easy tool to assist the designer and provide
the client with software that meets the needs of the market.
