Structural Frame & Truss Analysis Program RSTAB | Load Generation

RSTAB - Ultimate Structural Frame & Truss Analysis Software for Demanding Engineers

The 3D structural frame analysis program RSTAB is the ideal tool for the design of beam, frame, or truss structures consisting of steel, reinforced concrete, timber, aluminum, or other materials.

With RSTAB, you can easily and quickly define a structural model and then calculate the internal forces, deformations, and support reactions. Various add-on modules are available for structural design, considering both material and standard-specific requirements.

The Best Structural Modeling Program

"We are dealing with Structural and Seismic Engineering since 1998. Dlubal Software is, in our experience, the best structural modeling program on the market. We recommend it to all those who need to deal with special and daily cases."

As a standard feature, RSTAB includes helpful tools for generating wind, snow, and ice loads, and other loads, as well as for converting surface loads into member loads.

1

Snow Load Generator

Snow loads can be generated as member loads on flat/monopitch roofs and duopitch roofs.

Additional snow loads such as drifted snow loads, snow overhangs, and snow guards can be taken into account as well.

The following standards are available:

  • European Union 1991-1-3 (incl. National Annexes)
  • Germany  DIN 1055-5
  • Spain CTE DB-SE-AE
  • United States ASCE/SEI 7-16


2

Wind Load Generator

Wind loads can be automatically generated as member loads on the following structural components (optional with internal pressure for open buildings):

  • Vertical walls
  • Flat roofs
  • Monopitch roofs
  • Duopitch/Troughed roofs
  • Vertical walls with roof

The following standards are available:

  • European Union 1991-1-4 (including National Annexes)
  • Germany DIN 1055-4
  • Spain CTE DB-SE-AE
  • United States of America ASCE/SEI 7-16

3

Generating Member Loads from Area Loads

Area loads can be automatically converted into member loads. There are 2 options available for this:

  • Member loads from area loads via plane
  • Member loads from area loads via cells

Depending on the selected option, you either have to define a plane via corner nodes or select cells in the graphic. The area load can either be applied to the entire surface or only the effective or projected surface of the members.

4

Generating Member Loads from Free Line Loads

With this generator, you can define free line loads, for example, for girder grillages (from conveyor belts, for example) and proportionally allocate them to members.

5

Generating Member Loads from Coating

Coating loads can be generated as member loads from ice loads, claddings, and so on.

For this, you only have to specify the thickness and specific weight of the coating.

6

Generating Loads from Accelerated Motion

This generator creates loads as a result of an acceleration or rotation (from tower cranes, for example), which acts on specific objects of the model.

The mass is determined from the self-weight.

Easy Modeling of Structures

“I really enjoy working with Dlubal Software programs. The structure generation and modification can proceed smoothly:

  • Manageability of functions in the menu and movability in space
  • Data transparency: checks, options to modify and transfer data

I am happy that I switched over to Dlubal Software!”
