Steel Beam Calculator Ltd is a UK registered company run by Kevin Taylor and John Croasdale. Kevin is a practising structural engineer with over 20 years’ experience in the industry; he’s also an Associate Member of the Association of Building Engineers. John is a software developer with more than 15 years’ experience.
Kevin and John set up this website in 2011 to enable building industry professionals to design safe and effective steel beams more quickly and affordably. This calculator also designs really efficient steel beams, using the most advanced Eurocodes. In some instances, this can reduce steel requirements by over a quarter when compared to British Standards, thereby saving precious resources and money.
What you get – the report
After entering the details and measurements for your required steel beam into the calculator, you immediately get a PDF beam calculation report, which tells you if your beam will meet building regulations and includes detailed specifications.
