Structural Frame & Truss Analysis Software RSTAB | User Interface

Structural Engineering Analysis & Design Software

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. For further design, there are various add‑on modules available, considering structural data of specific materials and standards.

Editable GUI for Individual Adjustment

A model is created in the graphical user interface characteristic for CAD programs, using tables, or in combination of both ways. Extensive shortcut menus facilitate data input. Since the structural model is photorealistically visualised, you can directly control the data entered.

  1. Navigator Shortcut Menu for Creating New Member

    Intuitive Graphical User-Interface

    A model is created in the graphical user interface typical for CAD programs. Right-clicking on graphical or navigator objects activates the shortcut menu, which facilitates creating or editing such objects.

    The user interface is operated intuitively. Therefore the model and loading objects can be created in a minimal amount of time.

  2. Selection of the program language

    Multilingual Program Operation

    It is possible to operate the program in the following languages: English, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.

    The user-interface design of RSTAB is modifiable: There are nine different styles of graphical user interface to choose from, for example: Office 2007 Blue, Silver, Aqua, or Black.

  3. New Project Navigator - Views

    Project Navigator - Views

    Project Navigator - Views allows you to easily generate various views in a few simple steps. Moreover, you can save and open them again at any time.
  4. Customize dialog box

    User-Defined Configurations

    Menus and toolbars can be freely customized. It is possible to arrange frequently used functions and tools for quick access. Tables, navigators, and toolbars can also be freely moved and docked. Default settings of the program can be restored at the click of a button.

    In addition, it is possible in the Configuration Manager to set the graphic display properties, toolbars, etc. in a user-defined way and save them as your own configuration.

  5. Photorealistic visualization of a model

    Photorealistic Visualization

    The photorealistic visualization of a model in 3D rendering always provides a direct check of the input data. Display colors can be freely adjusted and saved separately for the screen and printout.

  6. Dimensions and guidelines

    Displaying and Hiding Objects

    It is possible to specifically display or hide various objects such as nodes, members, supports, and others. You can dimension the model by using lines, archs, inclinations, or height elevations. Freely created guidelines and comments facilitate the input and evaluation. You can also display or hide guide objects individually.

  7. Using a line grid

    Line Grid

    The fast creation of a line grid in the Cartesian coordinate system is now possible. This can be optionally labeled and dimensioned. Furthermore, you have the option to create spherical or cylindrical grids.

    The grid can be rotated about one or more axes. The settings for the line grid can be saved and imported again later.

  8. Adjusting units and decimal places

    Global Unit Settings

    A global dialog box manages the units of input data, loads, and results in RFEM/RSTAB as well as in all add‑on modules.

    It is possible to save the settings and import it again later. That way you can use different sections in steel and reinforced concrete structures, for example.
