Frame Analysis Software RSTAB 9 | User Interface

Structural Engineering Analysis & Design Software

Do you want a clear user interface without having to lose functions? Use the successful structural frame & truss analysis software RSTAB for your 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. There are design add-ons at your side that you can use to consider the material- and standard-specific requirements.

Let yourself be inspired by the intuitive, easy-to-use interface of RSTAB 9! Your model is created in a graphical user interface characteristic of CAD programs, via tables, or a combination of both. Extensive shortcut menus facilitate your input. The structural model is visualized photorealistically in RSTAB 9, which allows you to directly check the entered data.


Intuitive User Interface

You create your models in the graphical user interface typical for CAD programs. By right-clicking the graphical or navigator objects, you activate a shortcut menu that you can use to select and modify the objects.

The operation of the user interface is intuitive, as you will notice soon. Therefore, you can create the structural and loading objects in a minimum amount of time.


Multilingual User Interface

You can operate the program in the following languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Czech, Polish, Russian, Chinese, and Dutch.


Photorealistic Rendering

The model is rendered photorealistically (optionally with textures). This gives you the advantage that you always have immediate control of the input. You can freely adjust the display colors and save them separately for the screen as well as for the printout.


Display Properties

It is possible to assign different colors to various objects of a structure in order to make the rendering display of the structure more clearly arranged.


Displaying and Hiding Objects

Work more efficiently by freely adjusting the display of your model. You can selectively display or hide various objects, such as nodes, members, supports, and others. Dimension your model by using lines, arcs, inclinations, or height elevations. Freely created guidelines, sections, and comments facilitate you the input and evaluation. You can also display or hide the guide objects individually.


Global Unit Settings

You can keep track of things with just a few clicks. A global dialog box manages the units for input data, loads, and results in RFEM or RSTAB, as well as in all add-ons.

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

Special Solutions

The two-part Optimization & Costs / CO2 Emission Estimation add-on finds suitable parameters for parameterized models and blocks via the artificial intelligence (AI) technique of particle swarm optimization (PSO) for compliance with common optimization criteria. Furthermore, this add-on estimates the model costs or CO2 emissions by specifying unit costs or emissions per material definition for the structural model.

Pushover Analysis

Pushover Analysis for RSTAB 9

Dynamic Analysis

Earthquakes may have a significant impact on the deformation behavior of buildings. A pushover analysis allows you to analyze the deformation behavior of buildings and compare them with seismic actions. Using the Pushover Analysis add-on, you can analyze the seismic actions on a particular building, and thus assess whether the building can withstand the earthquake.

Time History Analysis for RSTAB 9

Dynamic Analysis

The Time History Analysis add-on performs dynamic structural analysis of external excitation. You can define various excitation functions in tables or as a function of time. The time history analysis is performed using the modal analysis or the linear implicit Newmark analysis.
