The objective of this paper is to investigate the Structural Analysis Format (SAF), which is tailored for structural analysis, for its suitability for BIM-based structural design. To this end, the topic of BIM is initially classified in general in the context of structural design, whereby important aspects of structural analysis are highlighted as well. Then, the paper presents the most common interfaces for structural design that are used for a BIM-based data exchange of structural models.

The following thesis deals with the theory of partial interaction, which has numerous application options, especially in the area of timber and cross-material composite structures, but also in other areas, such as strengthening the existing structures. In addition to an introduction to the mechanical and theoretical background of this type of composite, the relevance of such an accurate structural calculation is conveyed by practice-oriented examples.

The aim of this bachelor thesis is the planning and design of a single-span tied-arch bridge consisting of steel cross-sections, which can be used by pedestrians and cyclists to cross the Neckar river in Germany.

The variety of design options, application areas and possibilities to create shear coupling for the two main components wood and concrete make timber-concrete composite systems an exciting alternative in building construction. Due to many different connection options, there are various design methods.

The project includes the design of a housing unit in the city of Seville, built for patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Due to the building's characteristics, the decision was made to design a structure with cross-laminated timber (CLT). The thesis checks the compliance of this structure by going through all the development phases: pre-dimensioning, material properties, Spanish and European design rules, and various verifications.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) shows exceptional advantages and potentials in the field of structural engineering as well. These potentials, e.g., productivity, coordination, visualization, documentation, and waste reduction, cannot be achieved without an appropriate mechanism to ensure the smooth transfer of data from the BIM platform to structural analysis or Finite Element Modelling (FEM) software. Challenges in data transfer or interoperability to be among the key factors hindering the full participation of structural engineers in BIM workflow.

Nine student teams of the Department of Civil, Geo and Environmental Engineering of the Technical University of Munich have developed and visualized, under the guidance of the Chair of Metal Structures, individual designs for a bikeway and pedestrian bridge for the reconstruction of the bikeway bridge in Munich - A8.

Environmental emergencies, climate change, renewable energies: These terms are omnipresent these days and indicate an urgent need for the generation of sustainable forms of energy or the expansion and widespread integration of existing and proven green energy producers. Above all, it would be desirable to use buildings in urban areas as energy producers, in view of their high land and energy consumption.

This project examines the structural behavior of a CLT façade for different situations and wind load cases utilizing ANSYS simulations and Dlubal software programs. A thermal and mechanical characterization of the material will be carried out previously by performing different tests with the CLT samples available at the Faculty of Engineering in Bilbao.

The graduation thesis presents the structural design of the two-story community center "Archa," consisting of two separate supporting structures. The RFEM program was used for the structural solution of both parts. A part of the thesis is the structural design of the steel frame consisting of columns, beams, ceilings, and bracing. The design was performed using the RF‑STEEL EC3 add-on module. Another part of the thesis was the design of a membrane roof of the whole building, using the RF‑FORM‑FINDING add-on module to find the initial shape of the membrane.

Free Software for Students

Structural engineering software for students

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.

Great Webinar for Students

"The webinar "Design Cold-Formed Steel Sections According to EC3" was great. It was my first webinar and I would like to follow more in the future. Especially for new users/students like me and if too fast, it is very good that it is recorded and you can watch it again. I also like the fact that I was able to follow the webinar free of charge because students would rather not attend a paid webinar."

With the free student license, I can familiarize myself with the software and use it during my studies

"RSTAB is a software program that I recently discovered and which is very helpful for the calculation of steel structures. With the available webinars on the Dlubal website, I have familiarized myself with the various functions of the program. With the free student license, I can familiarize myself with the software and use it during my studies. I especially recommend it to civil engineering students."
