Deflection Beam Calculator

Blue Ketchep
Analyze structural beams quickly. Design visually and obtain engineering results, graphs, and equations seamlessly.

Whether you are in mechanical, civil, or structural engineering, unleash the full extent of practical Mechanics of Materials tools from day 1 as you are learning them, or come back and reference them any time in the future.

Simply place loads and supports on the beam, and select or customize any shape from the built-in library. Immediately see how the beam bends in response to the applied conditions. Deflection, internal stresses, and other results are automatically updated.


Obtain design results and diagrams in real-time.

• Shear
• Bending
• Deflection
• Internal bending stress
• Internal shear stress


Specify values directly, or find common shapes and materials using the built-in databases.

• United States (steel and lumber)
• Europe (steel)
• Great Britain (steel)
• Canada (steel)
• Australia (steel and aluminum)


Edit built-in cross sections. Shape properties are automatically calculated.

• Moment of inertia
• Area


Simply drag any load or support on the beam.

• Concentrated point loads
• Distributed loads
• Moment loads
• Simple supports
• Fixed supports
• Fixed hinges
• Floating Gerber hinges


• Apply beam self-weight optionally
• Automatic detection of local maxima and minima in diagrams
• Unlimited design files
• Quick-start templates
• Metric and standard measurement units

What's new in version 5.7.0
• NEW: Customize how cross sections in the library are sorted. Tap on the column headers to sort by cross section width, height, area, or moment of inertia (about strong axis).
• NEW: Choose to display either cross sectional area or moment of inertia (strong axis) in the cross section library. Tap on the drop down button on the right of the screen to configure which of these columns to use.
• NEW: Added some data for Japanese, Russian, and Indian steel cross sections.
• IMPROVED: Enabled additional properties for GB and CA cross sections.
• IMPROVED: Better search functionality. Now you can search by database (eg, "US", "EU", etc) or by material (eg, "steel", "lumber", or "aluminum") as well as by section designations (including alternative names).
• IMPROVED: Added translations of cross section property descriptions for many languages.
• FIXED: Minor rendering issues in iOS 13.
