Spreadsheet program written in MS-Excel for the purpose of determining the allowable beam end reaction and the allowable end moment for the purpose of end connection design.
It uses the database of member dimensions and section properties from the "AISC Shapes Database", Version 3.0 (2001) as well as the AISC 9th Edition (ASD) Manual (1989).
W, S, M, C, and MC shapes may be selected.
It utilizes the procedure which a steel fabricator would typically use to determine end connection design loads when end reaction values are not specified on the design and construction drawings by the engineer. This procedure is based on the AISC 9th Edition (ASD) Manual (1989) Allowable Uniform Load Tables on pages 2-36 to 2-140 and AISC Specification Chapter K, pages 5-80 and 5-81.
Contains “comment boxes” which contain a wide variety of information including explanations of input or output items, equations used, data tables, etc.
