Following some comments from 4Step on the last ConbeamU update, and a thorough check of results against Strand7 results, I have posted a new version that fixes a number of issues with the previous one. The new version number is 4.01, and it may be downloaded from:
The file is a free download, and includes full open-source code.
The download zip file also contains a summary of the check runs performed with the Strand7 finite element software. In Strand7 I have set up a model with 15 separate continuous beams, with the same loading but different support conditions, ranging from a single cantilever to a 3 span beam with cantilevers at both ends. These beams have been analysed in Strand7 and ConbeamU with different restraints applied at each support, and the results are compared in the Check Conbeam spreadsheet included in the zip file. The results show near exact agreement in all cases.
