The interface is designed for graphical interaction as well as numerical data entry. We hope the following information is useful.
CASA-Beam product page
The program consists of four tabs, each with a prescribed function:
For editing the beam span and section size.
For adding, removing, and editing loads.
This tab contains miscellaneous features:
Despite the small screen size, CASA-Beam allows very high resolution graphical interaction for setting data through the use of a slightly non-linear relationship between finger movements and data changes. Some users may need a little practice to become accustomed to this.
While CASA-Beam promotes the use of graphical interaction, sometimes it can be quicker and easier to simply type in a number, and so it is our policy to always provide such a facility wherever data is required.
To remove a load, ensure you are in the Loading tab and then:
