Boise Cascade
Engineered Wood


BC CALC® performs engineering analysis to help our customers size beams and I-joists for their building projects. It is simple to use, yet flexible enough to analyze most joist and beam applications. The user enters span, load, and hole information, and the program analyzes which of Boise Cascade's engineered wood products are necessary for a project.

After the analysis has been run, the user may print an easy-to-read design report that clearly shows span and load information as well as analysis results. The program includes a comprehensive Help menu.
