Theory

The program uses well established ‘concrete section analysis’ principals to function. The basic theory is as follows:

Algorithm

The algorithm to ‘solve’ a beam is therefore:

The program simply runs this process for varying loads in order to calculate results such as failure modes, ultimate strength capacity, deflection, etc.

In order to deal with real world data, the program makes use of the stated Python libraries to interpret inputted graphs.
