A new tool has been developed with Aurora Flight Sciences to automate stress analysis of beams under loading. It is a Microsoft Excel based tool to be consistent with Aurora's other analysis tools and analyst preference, and is coded in Visual Basic. The tool can generate the shear, moment, and deflection diagram of a single span or multi-span beam in less than 10 seconds for any combination of edge constraints and applied loads, as well as output the reaction force at each support. The tool can also analyze beams that change material or shape after reaching a support to account for changes in longer beams across the airframe.
