id description formula units
Stress in Beam Determines the internal forces within a beam stress = moment*distanceFromNeutralAxis/secondMomentOfArea NewtonPerSquareMeter
Shear Force in Beam Measures the force that causes parts of a material to slide past each other in opposite directions shearForce = ∫(dMoment/dx) dx Newton
Bending Moment in Beam Calculates the reaction induced in a structural element when an external force is applied, causing the element to bend bendingMoment = ∫(shearForce dx) NewtonMeter
Deflection of Beam Calculates the displacement of a point on the beam under load deflection = load*length^3 / (48*modulusOfElasticity*secondMomentOfArea) Meter
Load-Bearing Capacity Determines the maximum weight the structure can hold loadBearingCapacity = allowableStress * area Newton
Thermal Conductivity Measures the rate at which heat passes through a material heatTransfer = thermalConductivity * area * temperatureDifference / thickness WattPerMeterKelvin
R-Value Indicates the resistance of a material to heat flow rValue = thickness / thermalConductivity SquareMeterKelvinPerWatt
Heat Loss Calculates the total heat loss through a structure heatLoss = area * uValue * temperatureDifference Watt
Concrete Mix Design Determines the proportions of materials in concrete concreteMix = (cement : sand : aggregate : water) Ratio
Roof Slope Determines the pitch of the roof roofSlope = rise / run Ratio
Brick Calculation Estimates the number of bricks needed for a wall numberOfBricks = wallArea / brickArea Integer
