ConBeamU 4.08

The continuous beam spreadsheet has had another update to fix a problem when point loads were applied to cantilevers, and the first support position was not listed as an output point.  The new version (4.08) can be downloaded from:

ConbeamU.zip

The spreadsheet results have been checked against Strand7 results for 15 different span arrangements, each with 1 of 6 different support conditions:

ConBeamU5-2

The results are summarised in the file Check conbeamU28Nov15.xlsb (included in the download zip file).  Typical results are shown below for a 3 span beam with two cantilevers, showing near exact agreement with the Strand7 results.
