There are a few more definitions, but the main reason I picked www.beams.com is
the definition of "beams" and the analysis required of beams used in the support of structures.
BeamPro will analysis many different beams based on there various properties. I
wanted to give the designer/engineer a tool that could easily and efficiently complete
an analysis on a beam based on it's loading and material properties.
