Simple spreadsheets for pre dimensioning composite plates (like flanges in an I-beam)
I am looking for some 'simple' spreadsheets (or papers describing the equations) for pre dimensioning composite plates (like flanges in an I-beam).
The I-beam I need to pre-design is a cantilever one with distributed aerodynamic load along its span.
I have coded some of them (which I can share if you want) but I would like to check if the implementation of the theory is done properly checking it against some already solved examples.
