Computer Aided Design – Comparative Analysis of Widely Available Software with Analytical Method

Open access


In this article a comparative analysis was performed between analytical method and widely available computer programs employed in beam design like: ADINA, Robot Structural Analysis, Intersoft R2D2 and RM-WIN. In the analysis a simple case of a simply supported beam and uniformly distributed load over the length of the span was assumed. The conclusions from analysis are presented at the end of the study.
