Abstract: Not many engineering programs written in the Java Computer Language have been applied successfully to complex engineering projects. In this article, the Java computer language is applied to the analysis of statically indeterminate beam models using the Domain and Patch exact Beam analysis method. Java source codes and subroutines for the numerical three-support beam model example presented are listed, to act as reusable productivity tool kit to aid developers to minimize development time and effort.
