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.



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.

User Opinions and Experience

RFEM is in a class of its own

“I’ve used many FEA programs over the years and I would rank RFEM at the top. Very powerful with many options for modeling and displaying information while still being intuitive and easy to use from a common sense standpoint. In my opinion, RFEM is in a class of its own.”
