Design of SWT beams

 

Design of composite beams require advanced calculation methods, made specifically for the element in question. Design of SWT beams considers a large amount of parameters, besides the common moment and shear forces. The final element design is therefore always done by SWT’s engineers. 

For the early drafting stage, the table below is provided as a reference and help for evaluation of systems. You are of course always welcome to contact us for further help in case of complex cases or if you just want to discuss an idea.

The AutoCad 2D add-on (in Swedish, Danish or Norwegian) is meant as a help to those who want to draw SWT products correctly.

swtmeny1

After installation you will get a new menu named SWT, under which the products are located.

swtmeny2

Choose the desired product.

swtmeny4

After clicking on “SWT-balken”, you will get this icon menu. Choose the desired beam dimension in the left list. The column is pasted as a block into your drawing.

swtmeny5

After clicking on “SWT-pelare rund” (a circular SWT column), you will get this icon menu. Choose the desired beam dimension in the left list. The column is pasted as a block into your drawing.

Feel free to contact us regarding this menu.
