Overview

Dlubal software and its modular structure


Dlubal software is based on a modular system. There are two main program families: RSTAB and RFEM. Each family is made up of the main program and its add-on modules. These modules are either integrated in the main program or, in a few cases, run as standalone programs. Integrated modules, however, only run with the corresponding main program.

RX-TIMBER represents a specific group of standalone Dlubal programs. Take advantage of the TIMBER package to design any timber-specific structure.

Design Software for Concrete Structures

Useful tools for structural analysis and design of concrete structures 

Design of a steel concrete slab in the structural analysis software RFEMReinforced concrete is one of the most important and most frequently used construction materials in the world. It combines the advantages of steel (high tensile strength) and concrete (compressive strength). Reinforced concrete is non-combustible and can have a very high standard of fire resistance. Typical reinforced concrete elements are floor slabs, beams, bridge piers, or retaining walls.Results for a 3D reinforced concrete frame in the structural analysis software RSTAB

Prestressed concrete is another type of reinforced concrete where the enclosed steel parts are intentionally prestressed. It is used when it is necessary to achieve large spans like in bridge structures. Furthermore, prestressed concrete is used for containing structures or, in buildings, for girders, hollow-core floor slabs, or precast prestressed hollow core slabs.

The structural analysis programs RFEM and RSTAB are ideal for analyzing and designing reinforced concrete structures. You can always choose the right Dlubal product depending on the focus of your work. If you deal with beam structures, the appropriate program is RSTAB. In case you also work with slabs, walls, and shells, the program RFEM is the right choice. RFEM also allows you to analyze and design prestressed concrete structures.
