RFEM

RFEM

Structural FEA engineering software RFEM allows easy and effective modeling as well as structural analysis and design of general 2D and 3D structures consisting of member, plate, wall, shell, solid, and contact elements.

RSTAB

RSTAB

Structural frame analysis software RSTAB contains a similar range of functions as RFEM, with special attention to beam, frame, or truss structures. Therefore, it is very easy to use and for many years it has been the best choice for structural frame analysis.

For Students

Structural Analysis Software for Students for Free

Dlubal Software supports students by providing them with the structural analysis software for free during their studies at a university, college, or institute of technology. Many students have already seized the opportunity to benefit from this support.

User Opinions and Experience

Impressive Webinar

“The webinar was a good presentation that showed the capabilities of your software. I am very impressed with the speaker's time management. To ensure the webinar is within an hour requires a talented professional engineer, preparation and knowledge of the material. This webinar reinforces the value and efficiency of RFEM along with the many add‑on modules.”
