I have build a portable crane. For crane hand I'm using steel beam IPE140, 300cm long. Fixed geometry of crane is 80cm, other 270cm of beam is actual already workload for crane.

Need help how to calculate or simulate workload weight of beam it self. Goal is to get approximately workload weight, so I could build concrete blocks for crane balance.

Thanks in advance for help.
