This function can be used to calculate any instance of beams with rectangular cross-sections and a notch at the support, for construction to Eurocode 5 standards. Dedicated functions may be more intuitive and user-friendly. If you are unsure, contact us!
Is the design force in Newtons (N)
Width measured in millimeters(mm)
Is the effective (reduced) depth measured in millimetres.
Depth measured in millimeters (mm)
Is a factor that consider the influence of cracks. Introduce true or false for the influence of cracks factor to be considered or not, respectively.
Length of the notch measured in millimeters (mm)
The alpha-numeric code of the strength classes. A value from the next lists:
Softwood: C14, C16, C18, C20, C22, C24, C27, C30, C35, C40, C45 or C50.
Hardwood: D18, D24, D30, D35, D40, D50, D60 or D70
Homogenous Glue Laminated: GL20h, GL22h, GL24h, GL26h, GL28h or GL30h
Combined Glue Laminated: GL20c, GL22c, GL24c, GL26c, GL28c or GL30c
The service class is indicated by introducing the number of the corresponding service class, 1, 2 or 3
Load duration is indicated by introducing one of the following parameters : I, S,M L or P
Partial factor for material properties, also accounting for model uncertainties and dimensional variations. This input is a number. example: gammaM=1.25
Introduce true or false to indicate if the notch is on the same side as the support or not, respectively.
Choose the language you wish the output to be in. Indicate either json or xml.
Kn= Notched factor.
Kv= Is a reduction factor.
Fvd= Design shear strength.
TauD= Design shear stress.
index= This value checks the 6.60 formula of EN 1995-1-1:20004+A1:2008, the 6.69 formula of CTE DS-SE-M and the 144 formula of DIN 1052:2008 and should be lower or equal than 1.
