Optimization & Costs / CO2 Emission Estimation for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9

Minimizing costs while considering environmental impacts of your project is more important now than ever before. Dlubal Software has the solution. The two-part add-on Optimization & Costs/CO2 Emission Estimation provides you with digital optimization. Find optimal input for parameterized models and blocks via the artificial intelligence technology (AI) of particle swarm optimization (PSO) in order to comply with the usual optimization criteria. Additionally, estimate model costs or CO2 emissions by specifying unit costs or emissions per material definition. These special features make it an indispensable tool for your project planning.

Building Model for RFEM 6

Are you planning to work on multi-level structures? If so, we recommend the Building Model add-on for RFEM. Define a building by means of stories at specified elevations. Additionally, use the add-on for organized result output by story. Display result information, such as story mass, center of rigidity, shear wall internal forces, and much more in both tabular and graphical form.

Multilayer Surfaces (such as Laminate, CLT) for RFEM 6

Complexity is great. With the Multilayer Surfaces add-on, you can define multilayer surface structures often used for cross-laminated timber (CLT). The program will automatically calculate the global stiffness matrix for each layered surface used directly in the program analysis.
