New Add-on Modules
Utilize the SHAPE-THIN 9 stand-alone program to determine now also cross-section properties and stresses of cold-formed sections.
RF-/STEEL Cold-Formed Sections
RF-/STEEL Cold-Formed Sections is an extension of the RF-/STEEL EC3 add-on module.
With this program, you can perform ultimate and serviceability state design for cold-formed steel members according to EN 1993-1-3 and EN 1993-1-5.
RWIND Simulation is a program for numerical simulations of wind flow around buildings or any other objects and generating wind loads, i.e. forces acting on these objects.
RF-/JOINTS Steel - Rigid
With the RF-/JOINTS Steel - Rigid add-on module, it is possible to configurate moment resisting joints of rolled and welded I-beams and design them according to EC 3.
The following types are available: end plate connection (beam to column or beam to beam) and rigid spice plate connection.
RF-/DYNAM Pro - Nonlinear Time History
The RF-/DYNAM Pro - Nonlinear Time History add‑on module allows for nonlinear dynamic analysis to external excitation.
RF-/JOINTS Timber - Timber to Timber
The RF‑/JOINTS Timber - Timber to Timber add‑on module designs joints where timber members are directly connected to each other by means of slant screws according to EN 1995‑1‑1 (EC 5).
CSA A23.3 for RFEM/RSTAB
CSA A23.3 for RFEM/RSTAB extends the range of standards for reinforced concrete design with the Canadian standard CSA A23.3 for various add‑on modules.
The RF-CUTTING-PATTERN add-on module calculates and organizes the cutting patterns for membrane structures.
The stand-alone cross‑section properties software SHAPE‑THIN 8 includes many new features as well as the graphical user interface adjusted to RFEM/RSTAB.
The RF-PUNCH Pro add‑on module performs the design of punching shear resistance for singularly or linearly supported surfaces.
RF-/STEEL Plasticity is an extension of the RF‑/STEEL EC3 add‑on module.
The module extension allows for plastic design of cross‑sections according to the Partial Internal Forces Method (PIFM) and Simplex Method in compliance with the second‑order analysis with 7 degrees of freedom including warping torsion (module extension RF‑/STEEL Warping Torsion required).
The RF-/ALUMINUM ADM add‑on module is applicable for the ultimate and the serviceability limit state designs of members according to the American standard ADM 2010 and ADM 2015.
RF-/STEEL Warping Torsion
RF-/STEEL Warping Torsion is an extension of the RF‑/STEEL EC3 add‑on module.
The program performs warping torsion analysis of members according to the second-order theory with 7 degrees of freedom and application of imperfections with regard to mode shapes.
