Revit and the Role of Structural Analysis Software


Current News

Building Information Modeling processes enabled by Revit are leading to advances in the building industry. For more than twenty years, the building industry has used 3D models so that 2D production documents could be created automatically, or the related NC data could be sent directly to automatic production.

Stability Analyses in RFEM and RSTAB


In RFEM and RSTAB, weak points in static models can be easily and quickly recognized using stability analyses. In the add-on modules RF-STABILITY (for RFEM) and RSBUCK (for RSTAB), effective lengths and buckling loads are determined for every member, and the critical load factor is displayed for the entire structure. The critical load factor reflects the stability risks of a structure. The buckling modes can also be visualized and even animated for a better analysis.

Unloading Area of an Industrial Site in Isère, France


Customer Project

The Études Techniques Lyonnaises engineering office was in charge of planning and structural design of the foundation of an industrial site’s new unloading area in the Isère department in France.

The new unloading area consists of a steel framework built on a base slab. The total area is divided into two parts: a traffic and unloading zone for rail cars, and an area with a pit and a traffic zone for lift trucks.
