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":

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.
