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

Keeping costs as low as possible while respecting the environment is more important than ever. Dlubal software doesn’t leave you alone. The two-part add-on Optimization & Costs/CO2 Emissions Assessment provides you with digital support. On the one hand, it finds suitable parameters for parameterized models and blocks via the artificial intelligence technology (AI) of particle swarm optimization (PSO) in order to ensure compliance with the usual optimization criteria. On the other hand, this add-on already estimates the model costs or CO2 emissions for you by specifying unit costs or emissions per material definition for the structural model. These special features make it an indispensable partner for your project planning.

Building Model for RFEM 6

Are you planning to go high with your project? If you have several floors, we recommend the RFEM add-on building model . Here you can define and manipulate a building using floors. You can adjust the floors in many ways afterwards. The program provides you with information about the floors and the overall model (focus) in tabular and graphic form.

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

The Multilayer Surfaces add-on allows you to define multilayer surface structures. The calculation can be carried out with or without the shear coupling.
