Buckling strength calculation
To work out whether your setup will hold your planned load, Systéal has developed an online simulation tool.
Please note: this simulator is offered with no guarantees from Systéal. Your structure must be checked by a specialist design office, in case of doubt.
To use it, go to the page for the product in which you are interested, then click on the "Buckling load calculator":
Buckling load calculator
In order to work out the maximum load before buckling, fill in the following fields:
- Load P: The maximum planned load (in kg)
- Length L: The length of your beam/profilé (in mm)
You can then confirm your simulation by clicking on "Calculate"
Then, identify your desired structure and consult the recommended maximum load:
- The maximum load is the weight which the load on your frame cannot pass.
If the results are red: the deflection is too high. Reduce the load or change the structure.
If the results are green: your structure is fine and will hold the load.
