Software for Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation
RWIND Simulation is a stand-alone program for numerical simulations of wind flows (digital wind tunnel) around buildings or any other objects by means of CFD simulation (Computational fluid dynamics).
The wind simulation can be performed for simple or complex structures. The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM and RSTAB.
Structural Frame Analysis Software RSTAB
The structural analysis program RSTAB for design and analysis of space frame structures provides a solution for demanding structural engineers. The software meets requirements of modern civil engineering and reflects the current state of the technology.
The structural frame analysis program by Dlubal Software is ideal especially for structural analysis and design of 3D timber structures.

Quai M, which is the name of the new concert hall, opened in September 2022 and includes two halls for concerts as well as rehearsal and recording rooms. The project replaces the city's old "Fuzz'Yon" concert room, providing a new and modern space for music.
This project is about the construction of an elevator shaft to replace the existing staircase and provide access to the underpass. The shaft was made of surface components consisting of reinforced concrete, ensuring its stability and durability with control of cracking at the same time.
Madergia, a Spanish Dlubal Software customer, presents this beautiful project designed by ZÜR Studio, for which engineers were responsible with regard to structural analysis, manufacturing, supply, and installation of the timber structure. It is a pergola roof with folded plates, placed in an open public space in the town of Anoeta.
A new timber structure can be admired in Monbijoupark in the city of Bern, Switzerland. The gazebo was built during the park renovation and is to be used as a meeting place in the future. The unusual shape is particularly eye-catching and fits perfectly with the surroundings.
The tree tower has provided a 360-degree view of the "Avondale Forest Park" in Ireland since July 2022. At the same time, the country's first treetop path was created; it was opened by Micheal D. Higgins, President of Ireland.
The LEICHT company was awarded the design phase for the Champagne Bar’s new roof, located at the Goodwood Racecourse. The planning steps included the form-finding process, the membrane and supporting steel structure approval and design, and the membrane and cable cutting patterns.
With the Crossrail railroad line in Great Britain, one of the biggest infrastructure projects of Europe is in progress.
The construction costs for the 73-mile railroad line amount to about €21 billion.
"Thank you for one of the best solutions. I quickly understood the basics using RX-TIMBER.
Hope in future I will buy short term licenses according to the requests from my job."
"I really enjoy watching the webinars you showcase on YouTube. They helped me to convince my client to recently purchase RFEM. They provide a wealth of information.
I really enjoy using RFEM. I've used many analysis softwares in my career but never have I come across a software as powerful and intuitive as RFEM. Thanks for re-sparking a new passion for me.
In just a few weeks, I've been able to use RFEM to analyse some amazing structures, from small to big. I don't understand why everyone is not using Dlubal? It's given my client the edge in this competitive environment.
Keep up the great work."
William Lefort, P.Eng.
Canmore, Alberta, Canada
"I have watched the webinar recording "Design of Cross-laminated Timber Panels (CLT) According to Eurocode 5" on YouTube and I am impressed by about the program and the very good presentation.
" Another very successful webinar, this time on the topic of laminate design.
"We are an engineering office specialized in concrete and metal structures. We have decided to purchase the RFEM software to calculate structures and mechanical components.
For more than a year, it has been a daily pleasure to work with this tool! The support team is attentive with specialist knowledge while the software is intuitive, efficient and extremely comprehensive. Kudos!"
625 Rue Cinsault, 84100 Orange, France
"I used this software for my master's thesis and I could handle it very well. It is intuitive and quick to learn; excellent results can be achieved immediately. The only thing I did not like was that I did not have a Mac version, but I hope that it will be available soon. Apart from that it works fine. I can recommend it!"
Ing. Elisa Moretti
