In this book for engineers and students, you will learn the basics of the finite element method in a practical way by means of manageable examples that have been calculated with RFEM.

We offer students the opportunity to use our programs free of charge for non‑commercial purposes while enrolled in a university or college. Join the many students who have already benefited from this unique opportunity.

  • If you send us a valid certificate of enrollment, you can borrow all of our software (full versions including all add-on modules except RWIND Simulation and SHAPE-MASSIVE) for a period of one year.

Many students use Dlubal programs to check their structural analysis exercises. You can find a number of exercise examples and tutorial videos here, including the input files for download.

Final Theses with Dlubal Software

Many study, bachelor, Master's, diploma, and doctoral theses have been created with the help of our software. Within a very short time, students will find their way around the programs and perform sophisticated structural calculations and FEM analyses. This is also shown in our directory of theses.

Support for Schools

We offer universities and other non-commercial institutions various options for using our structural analysis programs. Many schools use our structural analysis software for teaching and supporting their research projects.

Structural Analysis Software for Students

"I basically use Dlubal programs for my entire university studies. From the beginning, RFEM was far from the majority of software, so he didn't have much advice from my colleagues, but thanks to well-designed controls and webinars, I quickly learned to work with it.

And when I really can't handle it, there's still a hotline. So calculating statics with your software can be a real pleasure, and I really appreciate your approach to students. ”
