Structural FEA Software RFEM 6 | Load Generation

Structural Analysis & Engineering Software

Structural calculations shouldn't be a load for you, but a pleasure – the FEA software RFEM 6 takes care of that. It allows you to quickly and easily model as well as perform the structural and dynamic analysis and design of models with member, plate, wall, folded plate, shell, and solid elements.

Due to the modular software concept, you can enhance RFEM with the various add-ons and thus apply it in a wide variety of areas.

  • FEA Software RFEM 6

Quick and Easy Generation of Loads



  • Fast modeling thanks to sophisticated input technology
  • One program for all types of structures, from single-span girders to complex 3D shell structures or NURBS solids
  • Fast calculation using the multiprocessor technology
  • Support of national and international standards
  • Quick generation of a professional-looking printout report
  • Automatic generation of wind loads using the integrated CFD wind simulation (RWIND required)
  • API via Webservice
  • Globally recognized program with over 100,000 users
  • Professional customer support provided by more than 20 support engineers

When generating loads in RFEM, a large number of useful tools are available for you by default to facilitate your work process. The program includes, for example, the tools for generating wind, snow and opening loads, and other loads, as well as the tools for converting surface loads into member loads.


Generation of Snow Loads

Do your structures also have to withstand snowfalls? Use the Snow Load Wizard to generate snow loads as member loads or surface loads.

The following standards are available:

  • European Union EN 1991-1-3 (incl. National Annexes)
  • United States ASCE 7
  • Canada NBC
  • Switzerland SIA 261
  • Spain CTE DB-SE-AE
  • People's Republic of China GB 50009
  • India IS 875

Generation of Wind Loads

Wind loads are also not a problem in your design. You can automatically generate wind loads as member loads or area loads (RFEM) on the following structural components:

  • Vertical walls
  • Flat roofs
  • Monopitch roofs
  • Duopitch/troughed roofs
  • Vertical walls with duopitch roof
  • Vertical walls with flat/monopitch roof

The following standards are available to you:

  • European Union EN 1991-1-3 (incl. National Annexes)
  • Spain CTE DB-SE-AE
  • People's Republic of China GB 50009

Generating Member/Line Loads from Area Loads

Use all types of loads without any difficulty. You can automatically convert the area loads into member loads or line loads (RFEM).
In the case of member loads from area loads, you have to define a plane via corner nodes or select cells in the graphic. Then the rest works by itself.


Generating Member Loads from Free Line Loads

Also for pure member models, such as girder grillages, there is a useful feature for you. Here you can define free line loads (for example, from conveyor belts) and transfer them proportionally to members.
