About this worksheet:

This PTC Mathcad calculation shows how to design a warehouse based on a steel beam structure. Truss design is commonly taught in engineering courses, but based on a hand calculations approach. Instead, this worksheet uses a robust and error-checking method that can be performed automatically and repeatedly.

Download and explore this worksheet yourself! You can download a free lifetime copy of PTC Mathcad Express and get 30 days of full functionality.
