Single tapered beams

Loading Inputs

Design moment My,d

The design moment about the y-y axis, in kNm.

Load duration class

The load duration class, as defined in Clause

Service class

The service class, taking into account the temperature and relative humidity of the environment, as described in Clause


Factor kmod taking into account the effect of the duration of the loads and the moisture content, according to Clause 3.1.3.

Stresses parallel to the tapered edge

The type of stresses parallel to the tapered edge influence the total strength of the beam. The user can select if the design will be run for compressive or tensile stresses parallel to the tapered edge.
