sixpack Lift Station in Filzmoos, Austria
A modern 6-seater chairlift called sixpack Mooslehen opened in Filzmoos, Austria on December 17, 2021, right on time for the start of the ski season. The construction time for the entire project was only six months. The company m3-ZT, an Austrian customer of Dlubal, was responsible for the structural analysis, using the FEA program RFEM.
|Project Management||the Moosleitner family|
The new valley station was built at 3,468 ft, the new mountain station at 4,452 ft. The aerial lift climbs exactly 300 m (984 ft) and its 43 chairlifts take up to 2,000 people per hour to the top of the mountain.
Construction of the Valley Station
The station's main supporting structure consists almost entirely of grade S 235 steel. S 355 steel was used only for the bracings and some slender columns. A total of about 87 tons of steel were used. The station's main dimensions are L x W x H = 141 x 92 x 33 ft. The facade, which includes large glass surfaces, was clad with timber. The maximum snow load was set at 1,080 lb per 10.8 square feet.
The new elevated passenger ropeway meets modern standards and takes skiers up the mountain quickly and comfortably.

- How do I apply wind load on members of open structures?
- I do not want to design a cross-section in the RF‑/STEEL EC3 add-on module. Can I quickly remove this cross-section from the selection?
- I have a roof structure resting on a steel column that runs to the foundations. The column runs through a perimeter wall that supports the false ceiling. A considerable part of the load from the roof is transferred to the wall. I want the steel column to carry all the vertical loads from the roof. How can I do it?
- Are the models and presentations from Info Day 2018 freely available, and can you send them to me?
- How can I display membrane stresses in the results of RF‑STEEL Surfaces?
- What is the meaning of the superposition according to the CQC rule in a dynamic analysis??
- How can I display the internal forces in the global coordinate system and not in the principal coordinate system of the cross-section?
- I am designing a set of members using the equivalent member method in RF‑/STEEL EC3, but the calculation fails. The system is unstable, delivering the message "Non-designable - ER055) Zero value of the critical moment on the segment".What could be the reason?
- I want to create a mapped mesh for a circular hole plate. Is it possible to generate such a mesh in RFEM?
- I have a trapezoidal roof structure supported by beams. However, the moments on the beams are smaller than they should be. What could be the reason for this?
